Stem broken, light wear

Finely carved meerschaum pipe shaped like a full figure crying putto. The expression on his face is exceptional, made by an artist, not a standard craftsman. The case is marked: V.A. & E.M. Litkie / Kimberley / Diamond Fields. This was in South Arfrica. It is however more likely that these were merchants, not manufacturers. This pipe is most likely made by one of the great manufacturers in France such as Sommer or Au Pacha..

Stem broken, light wear.

The dimensions of this pipe are: 11 . long (measured in case ca. 13.5), and ca. 6.8 cm. tall.

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.
