SMS Meerschaum

Me voy a permitir copiar aquí una historia de la marca SMS que está en una venta de eBay, pues me parece muy interesante.

There was a time when Turkey controlled the export of raw Meerschaum, and prices for even the most common shapes and simple carvings soared in price. When the restrictions were eased, Meerschaum pipes became more readily available at reasonable prices and in various sizes. It was shortly after that in 1980 when Samil Sermet (or "Sam" to his friends) founded "SMS MEERSCHAUM". Sam was a native of Eskisehir, Turkey who came to the United States to study engineering in Ames, Iowa, and that is where he met his lovely wife, Beth (which in turn explains why "SMS MEERSCHAUM" is headquartered in the unlikely place of Ames, Iowa). The Company has become a family business with Beth managing the office and their son, Mert handling shipping in Iowa, while Samâ's sister in Turkey oversees quality control of shipments to the United States.

Of course, SMS Meerschaums are made in the same old-fashioned way hand carved by artisans in Eskisehir just as they have been carved in the same place for centuries! Each Pipe individually fitted in a leather covered, velvet-lined, hinged case with brass fittings.!

Origen: mr.can.pipes, Minnesota, en esta pipa.
