Item Details

  • Period:
    19th Century
  • Origin:
    Other Europe
This beautiful pipe is intricately carved with an Indian and horse motif. Comes complete with its original velvet-lined suede case. Circa 1880 8 1/2" length 2 1/4" wideMeerschaum is a rare mineral particularly suited to these elaborately carved Austrian pipes. As the pipe is smoked, the light and porous mineral changes color to give the pipe its characteristic golden and amber hues. In fact, the artists who created such masterpieces as this would often hire someone to smoke the pipe until the optimum patina was achieved. This particular example is very ornate and quite a rarity.
