New!  Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson Set (with Case)

Product Number: 004-653-0071

While my guess would be the iconic Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, it's unclear which famed actors were the inspiration behind this set of meerschaums. Equally unclear is the maker of these partners. In fact, the only thing that I'm even somewhat sure of is that someone thoroughly enjoyed these figural numbers, and I suspect you will as well.

The game is afoot.
