AKB Meerschaum: Carved Nude (Ali) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4806
A hearty meerschaum figural piece from Ali of AKB, this is ostensibly a bent Billiard shape, with an artistic rendering of a nude woman bound to the flank of the bowl, while a cradle of richly detailed feathers encompass the stummel. The bowl and shank feature ornate spot carvings that swirl in a hypnotic pattern, adding further ornate detail to the already intricately rendered design. The saddle stem of orange and cream acrylic arcs off the high-kicking shank, adding considerable height to the piece and striking a comfortable smoking posture. It's a bold, sizeable piece of meerschaum, boasting a tobacco chamber over two inches in depth, ensuring plenty of long, luxurious, flavor-neutral smoking sessions, which over time will patinate the pipe with tans, browns, and even pinks.--Davin Hylton
