That's a great looking meerschaum. I too prefer smooth finishes and classic shapes. Enjoy itNPD! My first Meerschaum

This material is very pleasant to the touch. Feels great in hand.
The inaugural smoke is soon to follow.
Says it has a chamber depth of 2.01". It appears to possibly be a piece of a collection that I've slowly been getting from SPC's estates but it may just be a coincidence.Looks small in pictures, but you can't fathom the incredible size of it I'm sure.
That's a shame, because your holiday collection will never be complete without a Groundhog Day commission...and with a block that size it could be fully realized.Meerschaum's gotten too expensive for me. Estates only now but I can't wait to see what he does with that monster.
