AKB Meerschaum: Carved Dragon Claw Holding Vase (Ali) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4486
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. Paired with a downturned amber-hued stem of tapered acrylic for contrast, this is a gorgeous piece indeed. It has no shortage of detail carved into the stummel, with a myriad of intricacies promising patination of tan and gold that will bring the carving to life and complement the coloring of the stem quite well. It's a palm-filling meerschaum beauty that proudly boasts what the unique medium is all about.-Joel Balyeat
