Here's a hard-to-find collection of items. These Meerschaum 5 Holders are hand-carved by Turkish artisans from genuine block meerschaum. If you're not familiar with the material, it's a mineral deposit that's soft enough to easily carve, and it's finished with wax. The combination allows the holders to color over time which shows off the carving even better. They have acrylic stems with gold colored trim rings. Here's a real blast from the past.
