Easily one of the wildest looking Goblins we've ever done. This pipe sold back in 2010 and has remained unsmoked ever since, until it was donated back to us now to help with paying Emily's surgery expenses. I jumped at the chance to improve it a bit, though, as in 2010 our green staining was still developing and wasn't as durable as it is now - Some of the green had already come off of this pipe just from handling it, so I took this opportunity to completely sand and refinish the entire pipe in a much more durable deep green contrast-stained finish that's quite beautiful and certainly eye-catching!
