Forsaleis aLarge Nice 1950s Genuine Pioneer Deluxe Block MeerschaumBilliard Pipe, series A3000 with a Genuine Amber Stem.Before Turkey stopped all exporting of Meerschaum, Pioneer was a leading manufacturer of Meerschaum Pipes. "A PIONEER meerschaum is truly the aristocrat of pipedom. It is Nature's gift to the pipe smoker.Pioneer takes this rarity of nature and deftly hand fashions it into a pipe of rare beauty and extreme light weight. Because it is extremely porous it gradually colors as it is smoked until is achieves a rich brindle color, so prized by the connoisseur.
