Article on Cameroon tobacco pipes
20 June 2017
Our curator Don Duco published an article on figural tobacco pipes from Cameroon in the yearbook of the Society for Friends of Ethnographic Art. The Amsterdam Pipe Museum houses a large collection of these pipes, of which sixteen were selected. They represent the styles in which these pipes were made showing the craftsmanship of the Grassland people. We hope this article will generate a larger interest in the pipe as a form of applied art amongst the ethnographic collectors.
