Turkish Estates: Altinay Meerschaum Rusticated Billiard (9mm) (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-6547

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 a neutral flavor, the pale medium also develops a patina over time, darkening with vibrant browns, golds, and tans. This rusticated Billiard by Altinay showcases the quality craftsmanship that can be rendered from the unique medium.
