This is a terrific pipe stand made by one of the best potteries in Germany of that era. It will hold 8 pipes and matches, and it has a striker (although the striker probably doesn't work too well). The stand was made between 1880 and 1900 in Germany. It is in excellent condition with only slight wear on the gilded areas, but especially the horses' mane. Otherwise it's in excellent condition. The pipe stand is about 7 & 1/2 inches tall and nearly 8 inches wide. It is clearly marked with the Eichwald logo on the bottom. The color of the photo is actually more yellow than the stand. The true color is closer to a very light tan, but the gold color is bright and shiny.
