AKB Meerschaum: Carved Floral Cauldron with Silver (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-3473
Some pipe shapes, like the Billiard, Lovat, and Dublin, have names that aren't directly referential to the pipe's actual shape. Others, though, such as the Apple or Acorn, do actual resembles their namesakes. Such is the case with the Cauldron, a rarer design but one that's still rendered from Italian makers and, clearly, AKB Meerschaum, as testified to by this piece. Like the cooking ware for which it's named, this Cauldron displays a rounded bowl with the rim curling outward to a slight lip. Further decorated in a detailed floral carving and sterling silver accent, this is an excellent example of the AKB workshop's intricate carving and finishing work.-Truett Smith
