The Marcus from Missouri Meerschaum is a design that we originally made for promotional purposes for a tobacco company for marketing its pipe tobacco. However, due to the new FDA regulations, the company decided to curtail its pipe tobacco business. Since we liked the design, we decided to keep it and make it available to everyone.
The Marcus has a Dublin-shaped bowl with a hardwood bottom and is stained dark for a burnished appearance. This bowl is similar to but smaller than our Mark Twain pipe, hence the name Marcus. To dress the pipe up, we placed a wide, nickel-plated band on the shank. The Marcus is a great smoking mid-sized pipe with a unique appearance!
