A calcined and rusticated meerschaum pipe made by Laxey in the Isle of Man, who made all of the meerschaum bowls for Peterson, Barling, Nording, and others.Typically the bowls did not bear a maker's mark, but just had the words "Genuine Block Meerschaum".imprinted into the bottom of the shank.

Meerschaum Zulu pipe

Laxey closed down their Isle of Man business after the supply of Tanzanian (Amboseli) meerschaum ran out in the year 2000.

Many of their meerschaum pipes were artificially darkened by a high heat process known as calcination to make them look old and well smoked. The blackened surface of this pipe is originally how the pipe was manufactured.

I still own and use a very similar pipe myself that I purchased new in 1972.

The bowl has been reamed to remove the old build up of carbon, and the bowl has also been thoroughly cleaned and polished. The stem has been cleaned and highly polished, and has no signs of bite marks or "teeth chatter". All of the airways have been cleaned out using isopropyl alcohol to remove the old traces of tar.
