Calabash Meerschaum Smoking Pipe. Real Gourd & Amber Stem. Strambach(?) Patina:
I have for sale a authentic vintage calabash smoking pipe.
It's probably produced by Strambach of Austria, but I cannot find the tag.
It has a meerschaum bowl, which sits on a calabash gourd shank.
The stem is made of amber. It has swirls of clear streaks.
Inside of the gourd is printed "Austria" and a number written in pencil.
The meerschaum bowl has a chip as seen on the last photo.
The length of the pipe is about 6".
The diameter of the bowl on the outside is 2 1/8".
This is a very high quality pipe, that shows it's age with great patina.
Thanks for looking!
Upon closer look, I discovered that the black band has a hairline crack on it.
