This block of Meerschaum was carved into the face of a stern man with a beard and turban. This pipe has been smoked but I don't think a lot. The stem has been tested with Simichrome polish and it test as bakelite, It is a beautiful yellow gold color. The pipe bowl is 2 inches high 2 1/2 inches to the stem. and the stem is 4 inches. It is carved underneath the bowl too. Very scary guy! It will come in a velvet bag ond maybe a nice gift box. For you from Kansas at 102 Degrees in Summer.
