Antique Meerschaum Sheik Very Long/large Near-mint+unsmoked

ANTIQUE MEERSCHAUM SHEIK VERY LONG/LARGE NEAR-MINT+UNSMOKED
This is a HUGE, VERY LONG, UNsmoked, breathtakingly beautiful, NEAR-MINT CONDITION and highly detailed/expertly crafted work using onlysuperior-grade blockMeerschaum; a fineChurchwardenstyle pipe, of a handsome Ottoman Sheik. Its exact age is unknown, but it is quite likely to be at least 75+ years old, due to its (absolutely flawless) Bakelight stem on the top of the pipe. Also, it is worth noting this hand carved by a mastersculptorin Turkey. The entire lower section, plus the sections of the stem of this very long, almost 18" Churchwarden pipe, have each been carved from individual blocks ofMeerschaum and have no visible flaws that I'm aware of.
For purposes of ethics, and full disclosure, I need to draw your attention to the front face photo: there is a tiny, almost unnoticeable crack on the upper left cheek. (See photos.)Perhaps most importantly, this excellentMeerschaumpipe should prove to be a very long-time, truly cherished smoking pipe and heirloom, with a generous (thus long-smoking) tobacco bowl. (See Pipe Vital Statistics, below.)
It's well worth noting thatMeerschaumis averylimited natural resource; an increasingly rare mineral. The bestMeerschaum,for both sculpting and smoking purposes, is exclusive to an area in central Turkey. Furthermore,Meerschaum-crafted pipes, particularly hand-carved blockMeerschaum like this pipe here,are very much the Rolls-Royce of smoking pipes; king of collectable pipes. In fact, a good block Meerschaum pipe like this caneasilybe a very often-smoked, much preferred tobacco pipe -- for manyGENERATIONS;a true as much pleasure with it's first smoke as its many thousandth. Most importantly, Meerschaum does not burn-out, as will eventually even the very finest, most expensive, ultra-high quality vintage Algerian Briar, or a top-of-the-line antique Root Briar by Dunhill. As a matter of fact, over a considerably long time (many generations), a heavily smoked Meerschaum pipe will eventually develop a strikingly beautiful, dark carmel-colored patina, which greatly increases its collectable value; is much prized by serious Meerschaum collectors. Thus, a fineMeerschaum is well worth the large investment it can command, and is equally well worth treasuring, over a great many generations.Moreover, this pipe can also serve as a very real, portable work of not just admirable craftsmanship, but as Fine Art!
