Historical and exceptional Meerschaum Pipe

Historical and exceptional Meerschaum Pipe representing the personification of triumphant Germany in the form of a Valkyrie crowned by an angel. 







This meerschaum pipe bears a crown of laurels.




An angel holds at arms length  the royal prussian crown which serves as a cover to the bowl of the pipe. 




On the coat of arms, the imperial German crown sits atop the uni-cephalous german eagle (thus after the war of Sedan in 1870).
