Antique Meerschaum Pipes

January 2, 2009

I found these beautiful hand carved antique meerschaum pipes on Ebay and Google Images.  I love all of the detail in these carvings.

  1. What a lovely page! Fabulous pipes!
    I have one that ranks with those. I could send a pic, if you like.
    My mother gave it to me; it was her brother’s in law. I’d love knowing mmore about its provenance and perhaps its worth.
    Thanks,

    i have just discovered the internet, but i’ve been a dealer and collector for over 30 years, you have made me realise how stubborn i have been and realise the web’s potential. what a wonderful collection! When i am more proficient, i will send you a photo of the only meerschaum i have managed to hang on to. It’s as special as yours. Take care
