AKB Meerschaum: Carved Dragon Claw Holding Egg (Ali) (with Case) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-574-6043
A large figural meerschaum, this piece from AKB depicts the popular motif of a dragon claw protectively clutching its prized egg, the talons and its cuffed wrist rendered in great detail. The pale, porous material of the stummel is beloved for its flavor neutral smoking properties and its intriguing patinating abilities. This piece will develop even more character as it darkens with tan, golden brown, and even pink tones as it's smoked over time, coming to more fully harmonize with the amber-hued stem.-Angela Robertson
