Antique Vintage Meerschaum & Amber Large Figural Eagle Claw Pipe C1890 Rare For Sale
Antique Vintage Meerschaum & Amber LARGE Figural
EAGLE CLAW Pipe c1890 RARE. Pipe is 7.5” long (19cm) and 3" in bowl height (7.5cm).
A VERY FINE carving of a Meerschaum bowl gripped in the feathered claw of an
Eagle! The patina is FANTASTIC with
tones of honey, cream, and cinnamon! The
meerschaum’s sculpture detail is superior, down to the swirling feathers and
overlapping scales. It is absolutely
premium, one of the largest and finest Claw Pipe examples carving – truly the
work of an “Old Master”! The mouthpiece
is Butterscotch Amber, which is more common to Europe which helps points to the
pipe’s origins as most likely from a Pipe Makerfrom Victorian Era Europe. The Amber mouthpiece has an antique bone
tenon and the pipe dates to circa 1890 (1880-1900). The
pipe is in fantastic shape for such an old, large pipe that was smoked heavily
by its Antique Owner who clearly loved it.
There is a little chipping to one or two scales on the bottom of the
pipe and the mouthpiece has been restored and easily unscrews. Pipe is so impressive I hate to part with it,
wonderful condition considering the constant use the Victorian Era owner who
smoked this pipe slowly over the years, often MANY times a day! The pipe case is original however the hinges are separated but
it still snaps together and ithas the old push latch classic to all premium antique
figural pipes of the Victorian Era. Shipping, Handling, and Insurance $6.00 international is
Good Luck on this
RARE and MASTERFULLY CARVED CLAW PIPE!
