AKB Meerschaum: Carved Floral Bent Egg (I. Baglan) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4920
With an outline that resembles many of the dragon-claw-holding-egg style of meerschaum pipes, this bent Egg from I. Baglan of AKB features a specific standout element. Before I get to that, rather obvious, design cue, I must bring attention to the patterning on the stummel, an intricately carved framework of fronds that frame on all sides a trio of relief carved flowers, petals standing out strikingly thanks to its layering. The shank features these same fronds, weaving into each other in a band near the end, before a trio shoot out into the heel, lifting upward to form a "claw" of sorts, middle one standing free from the rest of the stummel in a handsome display of talent. The stem paired with the shank is a lithe stretch of marbled amber acrylic, decorated with expansion rings, begging to be clenched.-John McElheny
