Antique Vintage Large Cased Meerschaum And Amber Bulldog Estate Pipe :
This is an old large cased Meerschaum and amber Bulldog style pipe. My guess is that this is a late 19th or early 20th century pipe.
The interior of the screw on bowl is darkened from use but shows no defects, damage or loss. The exterior has a nice patina and is in very good condition. The draught hole is centered inside the bowl. It transitions to three holes on the underside. Threads are clean and straight and function well.
The stem is translucent amber. It has a very light textured pattern. I filled a couple chips at the bit. It otherwise has no tooth wear. The shank and base section is also amber. It also has a light textured pattern. I did fill some chips at the base of the bowl. It has a bone tenon glued into the shank. The stem screws on, the alignment is perfect and the draught is very good.
The suede case is in good condition. It shows only very minor wear. The hinges are tight and the clasp works. The interior blue plush lining is good as well. There is a little minor discoloration from the bowl and bit. The interior shows the Genuine Warranted Meerschaum logo. The edge of the case is stamped in gold the original sellers name. It reads: “Leo Abraham & Co. Milwaukee”.
The pipe measures: 6” from the bit to the bowl leading edge. The bowl is 2 1/8” tall with a .75” bore. It’s a big one.
It is cleaned and ready to smoke!

For my International friends: USPS Priority Mail International tracks your package and allows insurance. This service averages about $35. USPS Express Mail International works as well but costs even more. USPS International Air Mail costs a lot less, usually $8-12, but does not track or allow insurance. All I can do is send you the US Customs number from the declaration form attached to the package when I mail it. I cannot be responsible packages sent International Air Mail. Though it seems to be rare for packages to go missing (I've never lost one), it can happen. The buyer assumes the risk.
