A lovely and unusual pipe with a definite "WOW" factor.
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. 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 on the rim of the bowl is originally how the pipe was manufactured.
The bowl has been thoroughly cleaned, re-waxed and polished. The chamber has been reamed to remove the old build up of carbon. The stem has been cleaned and polished. It has come up just like new! All of the airways have been cleaned out using isopropyl alcohol to remove the old traces of tar and to sterilise it.
