AKB Meerschaum: Carved Dragon Claw Holding Egg (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4266
A popular design in the world of meerschaum pipes, this figural piece from AKB depicts the sharp talons of a dragon gripping an egg that houses the pipe's tobacco chamber. Ornate and richly detailed, the piece draws the eye as it takes in the intricacies of the scaly flesh and the bulbous knuckles of the dragon's claw, their crisp definition contrasting with the egg's smooth rendering, save for two subtle flower carvings adorning its front. The chocolatey hues of the gently arcing acrylic stem perfectly complement the clean whiteness of the stummel, adding a splash of color that does not distract from the bold presentation it showcases. With age and use, this piece will patinate gracefully, taking on browns, tans, and pinks that will further enhance and define the dragon and his treasure.--Davin Hylton
