AKB Meerschaum: Carved Bent Brandy Sitter (Altay) (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-574-6086

Rather lengthy overall, coming in at a little under seven inches long, this bent Brandy from AKB Meerschaum is quite intricately carved, and in a way that we've seldom seen before from the Turkish workshop. The bowl here is affably plump, as a Brandy ought to be, and showcases a carved, three dimensional netting pattern across its fore, sweeping down to the heel, which is actually hollowed underneath in an extremely striking display of Altay's talent for shaping meerschaum. This is framed by a pattern of beads, followed by a woven motif at the aft of the bowl, and Celtic knots at either flank of the lower midsection. Beneath the transition is a lattice carved foot that allows for stable sitting, especially if the chamber is filled with tobacco, and the shank showcases some sharp flares near its end for a touch of angular structure. A lengthy, demurely curved stem of swirling cream and amber hues trails away out back, sure to better match with the stummel as it patinates and offering a comfortable smoking posture.
