Today a selection from our carved meerschaum pipes. The earlier examples have the characteristic high Hungarian bowl with carved decoration. The design gets more imaginative after 1850 with a number of portrait pipes. Many of these are meant for smoking cheroots, small cigars. The absorbing quality of the meerschaum makes that even the end of a cigar still tastes well, since all nicotine and tar is taken by the material.
