Very good condition, old restoration on hat, pin in hinge missing

This featured pipe bears a political message. The pipe is shaped like a 19th century gentleman in waistcoat and tailed jacket riding a dachshund. In 19th century political parody the dachshund stands for Germany. Which nation the gentleman represents is unclear but he is definitely controlling the dachshund.
Meerschaum pipes modeled like full figures are rare to find and typically depict mythological scenes. There are no markings on this pipe but it is probably made in the Austro Hungarian Empire, around 1870.

The pipe is 12 cm. tall, measured from the base to the top of his hat. It is 10 cm. long.

Take a close look at the photos which are a part of the description. Any damage not mentioned in the text, but visible in the photos are regarded as described.

This lot will be sent with insured shipping by PostNL.
