I have a two and a half inch pipe in a wooden curved case.

Customer Question
I have a two...

I have a two and a half inch pipe in a wooden curved case . it has a small ram with horns carved on the top, no markings, red felt inside box. I have several pictures.I assume it is a Meershaun and it is at least 120 years old.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not sure other than pictures
