Pipe Art

I rarely see pipes anymore but Istanbul's Grand Bazaar had a beautiful selection of hand-carved Meerschaums.  Works of art even non-smokers can appreciate!


  1. Great series of meerschaum pipes. Had a friend who used to smoke one. They are beautiful objects. These are spectacular. Good work.

  2. Glad you appreciate them, Jeff. They are lovely. My grandfather had one and the fragrance of his cherry tobacco was so pleasant that we children would actually ask him to smoke!
