Hello everyone. I was in a second hand store that sells a little bit of everything and saw they had some pipes for sale. One of them was a bent billiard lattice meerschaum. It is unsmoked and felt quite light in my hand. I’ve never held a meerschaum pipe until this one so I have nothing to compare it to as far as the weight goes but it felt similar or maybe even a little bit lighter than my Brigham shape # 29 ( bent Apple ) briar pipe. I didn’t think to take a picture of it, but next time I’m at the store, I’ll see if they will allow me to take some pics. The price is $89.00. The store owner said the gentleman who brought it in claimed to have paid close to $200 for it. I’m wondering if there is a way to tell wether this pipe is made from block or pressed meerschaum?
