Exceptional carved meerschaum skull pipe. Amazing original fitted leather case with brass clasp. Carved bone stem. Wonderful detail on this little gem. Excellent patina. Too small for tobacco. Too short for opium. Most likely used for hashish, which was still legal when the pipe was made. A great piece with such a cool look.

 

Date: Late 19th century.

 

Size: Pipe is 4 1/2″ long.

 

Condition: Expected aging, light staining and wear to pipe and case. Few loose stitches at clasp. Please use photos and description to determine condition.
