Vintage Edmond MEERSCHAUM PIPE Elegant Hand Great Carve

On the auction block is the perfect gift for the vintage pipe collector. It is a meerschaum, or stone pipe, unusual and beautifully hand carved, depicting a slender lady's hand holding the bowl. The pipe is in fantastic condition, with no chips or cracks whatsoever. The detail of the carving is wonderful, down to the fingernails, ruffled cuff and tiny button. The finish is very smooth and it retains all warm patina. It nestles comfortably into its carved wooden box which carries a pyro mark on the bottom for the Edmond pipe company of Eugene Oregon. The stem is black and may be bakelite, but it too is in excellent condition. The pipe does draw but not nearly as freely as it should, so it needs a good cleaning by someone who knows how. The pipe measures over 5 inches from fingertip to stem tip and the box measures 8 x 3 x 2". The pipe has been used very lightly, not at all excessively. This pipe will be a pleasure to smoke or put on display or both. Don't miss the chance to add it to your collection.
