AKB Meerschaum: Carved Dragon Claw Holding Flower (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4904
Honoring the tradition of "dragon claw holding a _" shaped pipes, this offering from AKB Meerschaum features the iconic claw clutching a blooming rose. The marbled amber acrylic stem features expansion rings before meeting the shank which features curling hair that rims the scarred wrist of the claw. The back of the wrist-shank is carved with three ridges of keeled scales that extend to the heel of the bowl before forming the talons. These talons grip the rose palpably, indentations in the soft petals readily seen as they droop over the claw organically. Featuring a natural white finish, this attractive meerschaum is sure to patinate beautifully as it is smoked.-John McElheny
