AKB Meerschaum: Rusticated Bent Billiard with Silver (Tekin) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-3396
Rustication isn't a finish you typically see used on many meerschaum pipes, yet the technique works quite well, adding a bit of craggy texture to an otherwise smooth medium. In this piece from Tekin Gok, that texture combines with a deep, crimson stain to dress a traditionally shaped bent Billiard with the stem's fiery ruby tones topping things off quite nicely. A broad band of sterling silver offers some brilliant contrast while the multiple expansion rings along the stem's base makes this piece even more eye catching.- Andrew Wike
