This is a larger Kiko Model No. 9 meerschaum-lined bent billiard made in Tanzania.
The meerschaum lining comes from the great deposits of meerschaum mined in the Lake Tanganyika in eastern Africa.
The pipe is stamped Tanzania so we know it was made after 1960 with Zanzibar united with Tanganyika to form the United Republic of Tanzania.
This pipe had been smoked when I found it but was in decent shape. It is a well-made and has been totally refurbished.
It's meerschaum lining is in excellent shape and has begun to acquire the usual patina that meerschaum pipes accumulate as they are smoked. 
The mouthpiece had a couple of tooth abrasions and they have been minimized but I do not grind down mouthpieces and destroy their structural integrity.
Its natural briar finish has been treated with a hand-rubbed coat of carnauba wax.
This is a good, solid smoking pipe with a lot of
life left in it.

I don't smoke dirty pipes, therefore I don't sell dirty pipes. This one has
been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. I use nothing but non-toxic,
biodegradable products in restoring old pipes. 

This pipe is 5-7/8 inches long. The inside diameter of the tobacco chamber is 13/16 of an inch. The height of the bowl is 2 inches.

Check out my pipe book "Old Briar -
Pipe Smoking on a Budget" under "Books" in my eBay store.
This book will tell you how to find, restore and trade the great old pipes -
pipes that smoke good from the first puff once refurbished and pipes from which
you will get as good, or better, a smoke than any $100 pipe on the market
today.
