      Welcome to CW :-)
      Sorry, no appraisers here...
      Meerschaum for sure! and a nice collector's piece.

      Certainly looks like Meerschaum and most likely late 19th century. You don't show the top of the case-- any makers information?

      What did you pay for it?

      You did really well.

      With the case and two bowls (heads), I would think you are in the $100+. To get a more precise figure, I'd suggest you take a look at ebay SALES.

      The African meerschaum pipes always seem to find collector interest.

      Thanks for sharing your bargain find!

      I changed the picture where you can see the top of the case. I paid for it 100 zl (it's approximately 26$).
      kyratango... sorry for the question about the price but I just wanted to know I have not paid too much.
      sorry for the mistakes, but my English is at a medium level

      Do you know some good forums about the antiques where the object can be measured?
    6. scottvez scottvez, 5 years ago
      No issues: "an item’s value will sometimes be a part of the conversation".

      Welcome to CW-- hope to see more of your finds.

      I have more interesting items to identify. In spare time i will put them on forum.

      Thanks for help:)

      Victor, your English is better than medium :-D
      You got a bargain!
      Impatient to see your other pieces!

      Have you tried to assemble it? The stem (shank) is made of wood and a mouthpiece should be attached to it. The other end fits meerschaum heads. The object in the middle should be a tobacco cup fitting the top of heads. Something is missing for sure (empty place in the box). Was it a mouthpiece? Hard to say unless assembled.
      Appraisal is difficult, those pipes are either overestimated or underestimated. You can see the difference if you search UK and USA eBay for ``meerschaum pipe`` and German eBay for ``Meerschaumpfeife``.
