Description
A beautiful, rare antique 19th century meerschaum and Amber smoking pipe. Very finely carved as three baby chick's hatching from an egg, held in a cuffed hand, an unusual and fine variation on the Victorian fascination with hands. The bowl and shank all expertly carved from meerschaum, it has a rich deep Amber stem / mouthpiece, the chicks have little inset black glass eyes. There is exceptionally great attention to detail on this one. It comes all packed safely in its original leather bound and velvet lined case. Condition: Good used condition overall, rich patina to the meerschaum, smoked with charring evident in the bowl, one chick missing one small eye, the Amber stem has been extensively repaired and has many cracks and hairlines along with visible repaired areas, could do with replacing. Approx measurements: (out of case) 4.75" total length 1.5" total height Any questions or queries please contact us. FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING.
