Duco's manual available again

The much-cited handbook on the Dutch clay pipe (1987) by Don Duco has been sold out since 2010. By a wonderful stroke of luck we found six copies, incorrectly stored more than ten years ago and still in new condition. For those who have been looking for this book for years, now is the chance to get their hands on it. The price is Euro 50. First ordered, first served!

Cannon fire

4 May 2024

Cannon fire

We previously showed a pipe with a cannon in our central display case, which was admired by everyone. The pipe that will be on display in the coming weeks is equally prestigious. It is a large meerschaum bowl with a robust shell shape at the base. The quality of the pipe is made by the mounting in silver, especially the hinged cover. A miniature cannon has been designed on the top with a stack of bullets on both sides. When we open the lid, a second lid becomes visible with a special button. There we see a personal coat of arms and the portrait of the French king Louis Philippe. The chic stem is made of twisted buffalo horn alternated with ivory. Also note the curled snake that acts as a clamp spring, with ruby ​​eyes. Curious about all that luxury? Come and admire!
