Period approx 1900 or even earlier.

The connaisseur can determine the age of the pipe by the inscriptions on the silver ring. I think I see a smaller T and a lion, but I can’t decipher the third symbol. This is a smaller calabash than the common models and the black meerschaum boiler is removable. The meerschaum is oil cured.
If you would compare it with a briar pipe, it would be a group 4.
Its condition is, considering its age, very good.
Length: +/- 13.50 cm
Height +/- 7 cm
Diameter boiler +/- 21 mm
