A special bequest
5 April 2017
Totally unexpected we received today an e-mail message saying that the Amsterdam Pipe Museum is bequeathed with a pipe collection. It's about the collection of Felix van Tienhoven, a Dutch collector who passed away. Felix had a special interest in tobacco pipes, completely or partly made out of metal. His stay in Japan for several years gave rise to this focus. The scope of his collection extended finally to pipes from all parts of the world as long as they are made in metal. We will keep you posted on the follow-up.
