Managed by a gent who also happens to be a physics engineer, and boasting a team of some of the finest meerschaum carvers in the world, you will never go wrong with a Meer Queen creation. That emphatic declaration out of the way, when the meerschaum that you are considering is rated by the venerable company as a 6/6 in material quality, as well as a 6/6 in quality of carving, and
that second 6 resulted from the efforts of their grandmaster carver (Tekin) - now you're talking. I have seen some killer representations of the Topkapi Palace in my day, but it would be very hard pressed to cite a finer example than the one presently in front of you.
