AKB Meerschaum: Carved Octopus Holding Skull (I. Baglan) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-3883
Even within the world of creative meerschaum pipes, there are a number of themes that remain conventional — the claw-holding-egg motif, men wearing hats, floral and lattice carvings, etc. This piece from AKB, however, is one I had yet to encounter until now; it depicts an octopus cradling a skull, within which lies the tobacco chamber. It's a pipe of stunning detail, bold subject matter, and perfect for those drawn to avant-garde, eye-catching pieces.-Truett Smith
