This is a lovely Meerschaum pipe with amber mouthpiece. There are two hand-carved Irish or English setters facing in opposite directions. It is all original in its original leather and velvet case. It is 4-1/2 inches long x 2 inches high. The case is in used condition. Meerschaum pipes are very popular because of the nature of the material from which they are made. Meerschaum is a rare mineral similar to a light, hard clay. The light and porous qualities of the material keep the smoke cool and smooth. Because the pipe absorbs the nicotine, it slowly changes color to tans and browns. The pipe becomes more valuable the longer it is smoked because of this color change.
