AKB Meerschaum: Carved Skull (with Case) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-574-5519
Carved skulls are a common motif in meerschaum pipe making, with the pale color of the organic material perfectly mirroring the appearance of bone. This rendition from AKB depicts a skull with an anguished visage, its agony evident along the hollow, sunken eyes, which seemingly plead for something unknown. The figure's mouth is open slightly, as if about to speak, displaying a full set of ornately rendered teeth. Possessing the rich attention to detail that imbues AKB's figural shapes with so much personality, this piece is a stylish design that's paired to a lengthy stretch of orange- and cream-hued acrylic. With time and use, this piece will patinate, taking on tans, browns, and even pinks.--Davin Hylton
