Consignment Deadline
January 01, 2018

Nearly ninety examples will be offered, subjects include animals, mythological figures, military, erotic, and much more. Some of the pipes are included in the book, "Collecting Meerschaum Pipes" by Benjamin Rapaport and others appeared in the exhibit "The Art and Design of Antique Smoking Pipes" at the Brandywine River Museum and in the 1990 exhibit "Meerschaum Masterpieces, The Premiere Art of Pipes" held at the now defunct Museum of Tobacco Art and History in Nashville, Tennessee. Meerschaum pipes have been carved since the first half of the 18th century. The soft yet durable mineral is only found in Turkey and is well suited for carving and smoking. This collection represents the golden era of Meerschaum pipe art : the second half of the 19th century. The collection includes some of the best examples to come to market in recent history. All items are available for inspection in Maple Glen by appointment. Online bidding will be available from February 14 to 26, 2018.
