This is a very elaborately carved Meerschaum Pipe. The full figured nude woman has a scarf around her neck that goes the full length of her body that can easily be seen on one side of the pipe but, not the other side. Her hair is done in a up-do then her arms are both extended up holding possibly another scarf. Also there is a lightly carved scarf around her neck and chin. She has deeply carved intaglio eyes. The bowl of the pipe looks like a flower wrapped around the bowl then there is a separate piece for the tobacco. It looks like it could be removable but, I couldn't get it to budge. Right around the edge of the bowl there is a small chipped piece missing and there is no mouth piece. The size is large which is 4 inches tall and 4 inches wide at the widest part. The circumference of the bowl is 7-1/2 inches and the larger part including the stem that is there is 9-1/4 inches. This piece is very charming and would be a nice addition to any pipe collection. There is no smell. I don't think it has been used for many years
