Okay I guess I will start this thread off:
First up, an unknown carver Skull Churchwarden on the left, and a Kudret Eagle Churchwarden on the right.


Next, a R. Karaca carved dragon and egg on the left, and an unknown carver Cavalier(?) on the right.


Next, a Storient PM2012 on the left, and a Carved Billiard on the right..


And my latest acquisition an Unknown carver Estate Lattice Meer.. (Traded with Eaglerico for my Savinelli Goliath)

Storient PM 2012.I had him carve MOD on one side of the shank. I figured it was fitting since it is a PM pipe and I'm a Mod here.


A mini meer I got with my Storient pipe


An awesome meer I got off ebay.


Just a plain meer.


My Kirsten with a meer bowl.

Some nice meers in this group. I own 3, but only have pics of two:
A Sommer Meer from France, came with its original Ostrich leather case. Very small bowl - really only good for a 15 min smoke - even though the length is over 6". But has a genuine amber stem.

This is my Peterson Meer. Snagged this one off of ebay for a mere (pun intended) $25 bucks!

My other is a Kilimanjaro. An oldie but a goodie.

Here is my only one. I got it on ebay recently and have not smoked it yet :crying: I don't wanna ruin it so I'm reading up on care and handling.

Thanks six, yeah the #11 has a beautiful sunset glow happening on the rim. Now the Meerqueen I have been smoking more lately than any of my pipes and it is really coming along nicely. Much thinner walls are letting the color come out quick. I'll get a picture of it up soon.
Even though I only have two meers I'm hopelessly in love. Can't wait to add another to the rotation.

Here are mine. I have 2 Calabash style meers, one is a no name small, but is a great little smoker, great for sampling tobacco. The other is a vintage Bauer. There is also a little pressed meer lion that someone gave me as a gift. Two figural heads. The one on the left I bought cheap off a guy just loved the very nice carve. The one on the right was a Christmas present from my dad and it was unsmoked when I got it. It is a fun little smoke. The African Meer at the bottom I bought at the Briary in Birmingham. It is a Pioneer. Lastly and the center of my pipe collection is my very large Lion Churchwarden. It is a massive pipe. And yes I have smoked it!

If we are counting calabashes, let me add these:
This one is actually quite small, the picture is just really close. It says Enberg on the shank, which the seller told me was the name of the original owner.


I got this one off ebay, it's my favorite of the two:

Finally i can add to this Here is my Very First Meer its nothing fancy just a inexpensive one made in Turkey but i loved the stem and the carving on it figure its a good starter for my first Meer.

Congrats smokeybear. Meers are cool. Every piper should strive to own at least one fancy or not. I hope you have many enjoyable smokes and watching it color as you go.

I'd love to show off my meer, it was a gift from my grand-aunt. The problem is it grew legs about 30 years ago, and I haven't seen it since. (I think the baby sitter had eyes for it) I'm starting to think about replacing it now.
