This is my oldest pipe and was made in the 19th century. The carving on this one is exquisite. I have not found much information on these antique "Three Star" meerschaums and would appreciate hearing from anyone who has information about the maker. I used to smoke a pipe and like art so like artsy pipes and kept them after I stopped smoking. My preference was meerschaum, but I have a few briars, too. This one I inherited from my aunt. It belonged to my uncle who died in 1968. I am responsible for only a part of the coloring of this pipe. It must have been one of my uncle's favorite pipes. It was one of my favorites to smoke when I still smoked.
