AKB Meerschaum: Carved Dragon Claw Holding Vase (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-3969
A dragon holding an egg is a very popular meerschaum shape, but in this rendition, AKB places a taller, more vase-like bowl in the dragon's clutches for a bit more chamber volume. Even when paired with a downturned amber-hued stem, this pipe manages more compact proportions than are often seen with meers. However, it has no shortage of detail carved into the stummel, promising patination of tan and gold that will bring the piece to life and complement the coloring of the stem quite well.-Joel Balyeat
