Acquisition in meerschaum
17 May 2014
The collections of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum are expanding step by step. This week an elderly couple donated the museum a splendid tobacco pipe that was in their family for two generations. This meerschaum pipe is finely carved with a human skull hold by a hand. The work is done by a skilled and artistic workman, showing the finest details, which makes the pipe worthy to our museum collection. We are very grateful to the donators for their contribution. Do you have a pipe yourself, as beautiful or not? Take in consideration to leave it to our museum to have it preserved for future generations.
