AKB Meerschaum: Carved Bearded Skull with Hat (with Case) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-574-5912
Ghoulish, macabre, and richly detailed, this figural piece from AKB depicts a regal-looking skull wearing a well-coiffed beard and a fancy cap. The skull's sunken eyes and recessed nose contrast with the ornate style of the jaunty hat, making for a rather disquieting image. While meerschaum pipes are typically on the larger end of the shaping spectrum, this piece is more modestly sized, with a lightweight presence in hand. A gently bent saddle stem of orange- and cream-hued acrylic pairs nicely with the warm, patina-like stain that dresses the porous mineral.--Davin Hylton
