Well it took several days of 503 and 504 website errors, places that no longer had bowls but never took the pages down, several cached sites which were really dead ends and one site that had them in a variety of shapes, some plain and some with carving but no pricing so I wrote them and 5 days later I got a reply they were $20 each (I asked about a plain bowl almost Tankard height) and these are directly from Turkey. They asked how many I wanted and I wrote back just 1 for me but that I was on several pipe smoking sites where discussion on Meerschaum bowls for Falcon Pipes being non-existent and plenty of folks that really love their Falcon's. So now I'm waiting to hear back how much to ship from Turkey and how to pay for it. :D

I hear that voorhees, it might be more cost effective if say 6 were shipped rather than one although I'd eat importing $120 worth of product from Turkey rather than $20 so I will have to see what he has to say in any event, might not wish to sell only one but may take multiple orders of 1 from different folks.

Great detective work, Banjo! I'd certainly be interested if it wound up making any sort of financial or logistical sense. Those bowls are lovely!!!

I'd be extremely interested in the outcome.

Love the idea of a pure meer on the ed of my Falcon, rather than the common meer lined briar.
Peace out

While I'm not a Falcon person, I do have to say those are some beautifully carved bowls Banjo.

Banjo: You figure it out and count me in for a couple of bowls, the plainer the better to start with. I'd expect the cost to include any costs you might incur.
