Vintage Antique Scandinavian Carved Engraved, Silver, Meerschaum Smoking Pipe For Sale

Vintage Antique Scandinavian Carved Engraved, Silver, Meerschaum Smoking Pipe

Up for offer is an antique pipe. Thislikely dates to the1800's based on my research. I am not a pipe collector so I will describe the pipe as well as I can. The pipe bowl appears to be made of meerschaum. The bowl has a beautiful dark patina to the outer surface. This was a well loved pipe that has an engraved lid stating "FRA LVIGERFADER" or "FRA SVIGERGADER" . FRA = FROM in Norwegian. Maybe given as a gift from the mentioned individual. There are some light surface scratches to the bowl. I will leave any cleaning up to the new owner. The metal fittings on the pipe appear to be silver due to the patina of the metal and the stampings/hallmarks on the fittings. The fittings are nice and tight on the pipe. The latch on the lid closes tightly and has the engraved lid. The overall measurement of the pipe is approx. 16" long. The bowl is 1 3/4" wide at the mouth. The stem appears to be madefrom carved wood with maybe plastic fittings at the fabric connections. The fabric/ woven section has a break at about 1 " below the last stem fitting. There is chain linkage connecting the stem to the bowl base that appears to be as old as the pipe itself. The mouthpiece appears to bemade from wood. Please see pictures for greater detail, as I am not a pipe collector, though I know this is an antique and from a collector of Scandinavian pipes. I have no history for the pipe other than it was purchased from a pipe collector, and it has engravings that may lead to some historical information. I am not sure where it was made. Norway, Germany, Sweden? Please view all of the photos closely and ask any questions before offerding as all items are sold as is. Thanks.


I take pride in being accurate in my descriptions and value positive response. I ask that payment be made within 3 days of sale close. I ship EVERY THURSDAY. Thanks for looking!
