Turkish Estates Pipes
Generally speaking any estate pipe made in Turkey is a Turkish estate. Usually though, this will mean meerschaum, the soft white mineral known for its favorable smoking attributes. On this page, you'll find everything from classical shapes with ornate latticework finishes to bold figural or sculptural pieces, many of which were hand-carved by some of Turkey's leading artisans (whose names you will also find within our titles). From the extra large to the decidedly diminutive, there's something for everyone among Turkish estates.
What is an estate pipe, exactly? An estate pipe is any pipe that has been previously owned by someone else, including both smoked and unsmoked offerings. Each estate pipe that we sell has undergone a thorough cleaning and disinfecting regimen before it is ever offered for sale. Estate pipes are generally far less expensive than a new pipe of the same make, thereby representing an excellent value for the money, and for many smokers, a way to sample the wares of pipe makers they might not otherwise be able to afford.
