AKB Meerschaum: Carved Sherlock Holmes Skull (Ali) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-2892
Perhaps the most famous of all pipe smokers, Sherlock Holmes has been a common motif among figural meerschaums and has been depicted a countless of times. This AKB rendition is certainly a unique one, as here the iconic detective is portrayed as a skull, though rest assured, he still has his trusty pipe and deerstalker hat with him in the afterlife. Perhaps Moriarty or his eccentric lifestyle finally got to him, though, maybe he retired and was able live out his golden years in peace. Either way, this is a fascinating piece and is dressed in a warm, tan stain that brings out some of the finer details of the composition.- Jeffery Sitts
