The Eskisehir Meerschaum Booklet


Blog by Steve Laug

I was clearing up some documents on my hard drive earlier today and came across this booklet written by the Republic of Turkey, Governorship of Eskisehir, Provincial Directorate of Culture and Tourism. It is a beautifully written booklet about the mining, carving and use of meerschaum throughout history. I thought I would share it with you all. While it is brief, it is succinct and well-illustrated. It is worth sitting down and giving it a read.

    Thanks for posting such an informative and entertaining discourse from the governmental agency no less! I’ve often thought that the carved examples from 1890-1910 were beyond anything I’ve seen in more modern times. regards, Henry
