Should anyone get around to creating a "Who's Who" list of modern day meerschaum carving, the names of the dozen stars presently working at Meer Queen would unquestionably be prominently highlighted. The master who carved this "Now, this is how it should be done"
Phoenix Claw is no less than Tekin himself. This heritage quality example of pipe-art is rated a 6/6 on both the quality of the raw material as well as the carving outcome. Looking at this Meer Queen, I have to wonder if a "7" could be squeezed into the rating system?
