Fabulous pipe from a private collection (LA). This is a Bulldog shape. The pipe has been barely smoked. The mouthpiece has no marks. Made in Turkey by Paykoc. ( the stand is for display and not included in listing)

Excellent condition, this is a lattice carving, perhaps peacock feathers. Custom made case is included. There is a bit of dirt in the case. Your pipe will absorb the smoke taking on new character as it browns.

The first recorded use of meerschaum for making pipes was around 1723. It quickly became prized as the perfect material for providing a cool, dry, flavorful smoke. Because of the porous nature of meerschaum moisture and tobacco tar are drawn deep into the stone. Meerschaum became a premium substitute for the clay pipes of the day and remains prized to this day, although since the mid-1800s briar pipes have become the most common pipes for smoking.
