Our expert's notes
Eight hand-illustrated and printed Meerschaum pipe artworks by production illustrator Jack Johnson for Jon Turteltaub's action adventure National Treasure. Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage), Riley Poole (Justin Bartha), and Ian Howe (Sean Bean) discovered the Meerschaum pipe in the frozen wreckage of the Charlotte, then used it to access the Charlotte's treasure room.
This set of three printed bluelines of the pipe with hand-illustrated additions by Johnson and five color-printed copies of additional artworks features Johnson's signature. It exhibits some staining, smudging, and folded corners from production use and handling.
