Turkish Estates: Kamuran Bilgic Meerschaum Dinosaurs (with Case) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-5549

Before the utilization of briar, meerschaum was the preferred pipe-making material, its relative durability making it a popular alternative to clay. German for "sea foam", meerschaum is a porous substance that's easily pliable when wet and sturdy when dry. The material's malleability allows carvers to fashion a variety of unique shapes, from traditional Anglo-French standards to more detail-rich figural designs. In addition to smoking with neutral flavor, the pale medium also develops a patina over time, darkening with vibrant browns, golds, and tans. This Dinosaur piece from Kamuran Bilgic showcases the medium's versatility and the level of detail that can be extracted from the material.
