    A few CAO meerschaum estate pipes came into the local shop the other day, which is great because this shop rarely carries any quality meerschaums - which is why I don't have one. My friend Nate King told me that one of them was a Bekler, and explained a little about it.

    One of them was an eagle's claw clutching an egg shape that made up the bowl, and I was pretty determined to have it. Of course, I walked in yesterday just as they sold it. Sadly I didn't have the money to buy it right when it came in. But there was another good looking pipe next to it, and I put it on hold till my next paycheck. I'm pretty sure the one I put on hold is the Bekler. I didn't take too close of a look at it - I got a bit paranoid about dropping it. I'll confirm it tomorrow on my lunch break if I get the time - but for now here are some pictures - apologies for the ones that are out of focus.

    Can anyone give me any more information on the history/background of this pipe?

    If it's a Beckler it should be signed...probably on the shank. Nice looking pipe.
