The ones I've seen are carved.

What's funny is that for all the hue and cry over block vs pressed, the VAST majority of meerschaum pipes I've come across (runs into the thousands) are block. I've seen maybe 5 pressed pipes, and only 2 that were figurals. Meerschaum block is white, the pressed stuff has a gray-ish tint, like a t-shirt you've owned since 1982.
