19th Century Victorian Spaniel Dog Meerschaum Pipe with Case.


It’s beautiful detailed carving of a dog which looks to be a spaniel or a hunting breed of dog


The pipe measures approx 10cm in length


It fits in the velvet lined leather case but I’m not sure it’s the original case for this pipe



The first pipe recorded using meerschaum was created in 1723 by a shoemaker in Budapest. He discovered that meerschaum is highly absorbent and he repeatedly dosed it in water to make it more pliable while carving. The experiment proved successful, and the first meerschaum pipe was created.
