I love this item; its really cool, and as a pipe smoker myself, I have a hard time not keeping it! It's made of meerschaum which is fossilized sea foam, how cool is that! It is a relatively soft material and is ideal for carving. A lot of meerschaum pipes have nautical themes, because like scrimshaw, it was something sailors had readily available. The design of this pipe follows along that tradition. It's carved in the visage of a man, wearing a hat with a feather. I think he's a pirate. The stem is made of yellow lucite in the "half bent" shape, there is no filter in this pipe. Measures 5 inches long overall, bowl measures just short of 2 inches, stem measures 3 inches.
