Description

Antique carved Meer Schaum pipe with a figure of a woman on it. It appears to be made of meerschaum and wood. There’s what looks to be a silver band where the mouthpiece connects. I think the mouthpiece is Bakelite. I’m unsure the age of this piece. It’s relatively small measuring about 4 inches long. The case is wood wrapped in leather. It says “Warranted Finest Quality” and “Meer Schaum” on it. The case is in poor condition, but the pipe is in good shape.

Provenance

This came from my grandmother. I’m unsure when or where she got it.
