Antique Chester 1909 Hm Silver & Meerschaum Tobacco Smoking Pipe Figural Hand For Sale
Antique Chester 1909 HM Silver & Meerschaum Tobacco Smoking Pipe Figural Hand
An Antique Figural Hand Carved Block Meerschaum and Silver Collared Tobacco Pipe, in the form of a Hand and Lower Arm, the Collar Hallmarked for Chester 1909.
The Collar also bears the Mark MF, as far as I can determine this is most probably for Montague Friedlander, but may just possibly be for Maurice Freeman.
The nicely carved Meerschaum Clay Bowl has some signs of surface wear, patina, and the odd very small knock due to age and use, but it is still in very good order, structurally intact with no major damage, and all as shown very clearly in the Photographs.
There is as can be seen surface crazing to the Meerschaum in places, this is just that, and not deep, structural or serious.
The Stem is worn but intact.
The Stem, Collar and Bowl are firmly together and I have not attempted to dissemble them.
The Case is slightly worn but intact and serviceable with working Catch and Hinges.
All is as shown comprehensively in the many pictures, please examine them in close up before you offer, to satisfy yourself as to condition, suitability, etc. of the item(s) shown.
I always show items in their true light, and will never deliberately hide a negative or detrimental aspect.
The Pipe measures approx' :- 12.50 cms Longest end to end x 5.0 cms High at the Bowl.
A lovely gift, accessory and / or addition to a collection.
It weighs approx' :- 36.80 gms, not Cased and unpacked, and 78.0 gms Cased.
Any questions please get in touch, and good luck should you decide to offer.
I will post in the U.K. by First or Second Class Recorded Mail, and Worldwide by Royal Mail International Signed For.
To all potential buyers :- Should you consider my Postage Charges to be expensive I would rather you didn't offer and then leave me bad Detailed Seller Ratings on Postage Cost afterwards, ....I would much prefer that you first take into account the Postage Costs which are displayed clearly in the Listing, and then offer accordingly. Many Thanks.
I believe these to be more secure Postal methods, and better for the peace of mind of both Buyer and Seller, they are well worth the extra cost, as they are all trackable and /or require a signature on delivery.
More than one Lot to the same Address at the same time will of course be at a discount, please get in touch with your requirements for a quote.
I always provide a Top-Class Service, and a well packed item, please see my response for references.
