This is an antique meerschaum hand carved pipe featuring a mountain goat leaning against a Spruce tree and in its original case.
The mouth piece is Amber and is removable
Under the coat of arms on the lid of the leather bound case it says "BEST QUALITAT WIEN MEERSCHAUM"
A Meerschaum pipe is a smoking pipe made from the mineral sepiolite, also known as meerschaum. Meerschaum is sometimes found floating on the Black Sea and is rather suggestive of sea foam.
