Antique Hand Carved Meerschaum Turban Head Tobacco Pipe :
This antique hand carved Meerschaum pipe was likely made in Turkey, Germany or England. It's AMAZINGLY detailed and such a special pipe. The stem tested positive for Bakelite and there are no obvious condition issues. It appear to have been well loved and enjoyed. I think the figure looks like a rugged sea captain but his turban would suggest otherwise. Please view all photos as the figure is different on each side.
Pipe measures approx. 6" long (when laid flat - end to end). It's roughly 2 1/2" tall from base to top (on the front side of head) and the bowl is approx. 1" in diameter. The Bakelite stem is removable and in very good condition. The pipe weighs approx. 3 ounces.
