That looks a lot like this one of Bootleg's that's made out of Manx Meerschaum. I'm sorry for the link instead of embedding it, but I can't embed photos from his flickr account because he doesn't allow downloading or something.
I'm trying to find a wiki on it for you.
OK - here's the wiki on a company that uses Manx Meer specifically: http://pipedia.org/index.php?title=Laxey_Pipes_Ltd.
There is not an entry on any resource site for Manx Meerschaum and how it is still meer but how it is different as well. Does anyone have a section from a book on that that we can type it out and use as a source?
Thanks guys! (And looking for images of Manx Meers - all we got was pictures of Bootleg's.) Silliness!
Does anyone else have info for him (and now me) and soon us. :D
I have two Petersons exactly like yours, two of my favorite pipes, its meerschaum,the bowls were crafted on the Isle of Man (manx) and sent to Dublin for finishing, I hope you got it for a good price, they can go for a fair price here in the UK.
