Kiko Bulldog Meerschaum Pipe
made in Tanganyika

P0059

This pipe is a Kiko, marked on the stem as made in Tanganyika. (That dates the pipe as possibly before 1964 when the country's name changed to Tanzania). However the meerschaum bowl also bears the mark "Solwezi - May 5 71" which is a bit of an enigma, as Solwezi is in Zambia formerly Northern Rhodesia. (A country adjoining Tanganyika). The Kiko elephant logo on the stem also signifies made in Tanganyika.

The pipe is rusticated, but the sharp original surface has been worn down at the points of handling with years of use, to a smoother shiny surface. Honest to goodness wear from being used. The lower part of the bowl and the shank has also turned brown with internal stains from usage. That is normal with an old Meerschaum.

A lovely old pipe.
