Beautifuly delicate Meerschaum Pipe with excellent carving of a baby playing with leaves. The handle is in brilliant condition, with pressed metal joining the handle to the meerschaum carving.
The case is of wonderfully preserved leather, with a felt interior.
The Meerschaum pipe is a smoking pipe made from the mineral sepiolite, also known as meerschaum. Meerschaum (German pronunciation: [ˈmeːɐ̯ʃaʊ̯m], German for “sea foam”) is sometimes found floating on the Black Sea and is rather suggestive of sea foam (hence the German origin of the name, as well as the French name for the same substance, écume de mer)
