AKB Meerschaum: Carved Dragon Claw Holding Turtle (I. Baglan) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4171
According to our archives, we have never had a turtle-themed meerschaum before from AKB, making this large pipe quite the rare commodity. The dragon claw holding-something motif is quite popular however, and here our turtle is indeed clutched in the talons of a dragon, or giant bird, given the detailed feathers carved into the shank. Detail abounds on this impressive piece, providing a dearth of features on which patina will accumulate. A rare piece that will get even more unique with each smoking session, this is quite a find. Of course, if you like turtles you can't pass this up, because who knows if we will see another like it.- Joel Balyeat
