Antique Carved Meerschaum Cheroot Holder Two HORSES Running Leather Case

DescriptionFirstly... to really appreciate the item you need to ENLARGE the photographs...left mouse click ...they may look a differant colour due to the flash...the item you see will be the item you get.

 Here is an antique meerschaum cheroot holder, carved into 2 horses with outstretched legs, and the horses look to be kissing.They are on top of an early 16-17th century style of clay pipe.. the smaller the pipe bowl and the further forward they are facing the earlier the bowl...its abit like a Church Warden type clay pipe which had 3-4ft long stem....but of course this is a later carved meerschaum pipe....cheroot holder.  It's very well carved, there is even a little swirl carved into the base of the holder.It comes in an unusual 'short' case which is silk and velvet lined.  The case would not cover any mouthpiece or cheroot holder end.  I've not seen one like this before.This good holder measures 2. 1/2 inches in length.  I do believe the end piece is missing, these normally are little trumpet shaped pieces, but it wouldn't fit the case if it were there, and it can still be used quite well without it.In good condition, with minimal age and use wear. See pics.  Please see close up pictures for more detail.    The item(s) are shown next to an English 1 penny which is 20mm dia for scale.Conversion ... approx... 2.5cm = 25mm = 1 inch  If you have any questions, please contact me via ebay messages.
