Vintage Meerschaum Pipe Skull Design Artist Paktas Made In Turkey Antique:
You are offerding on a vintage Meerschaum Tobacco pipe, designed by artist Paktas, made in Turkey. It is a beautiful piece in excellent condition. The pipe was in the family of the previous owner for almost 40 years, which could make this pipe one of the first done by Paktas, as the company has been designing and exporting pipes to the US and Europe since 1973. I had it looked at by a local cigar and Tobacco shop and they did confirm it is an authentic piece. The bowl is made of Meerschaum, which is a soft white mineral, also known as "white gold." It derives its name from its likeness to sea foam. The stem is allegedly made of tortoise shell, although I can neither confirm nor deny that. It would make a beautiful addition to any tobacciana collection. Feel free to ask any questions and I will give answers to the best of my ability.
