Tabacology, a newly attributed section within the collection
11 December 2013
The online database of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum is still in development. Last week we set apart a new sub-collection of accessories for the pipe smoker, entitled ‘tabacology’. This group consist of 650 tobacco related objects or in other words tobacco paraphernalia. These are the accessories a pipe smoker uses during the act of smoking, apart from his pipe, such as tobacco boxes, pipe tools, pipe cases, stands, braziers and more.
Up to recently these objects were labelled as varia objects, which made that they got more or less lost in the larger group of curiosity such as pipe clay figurines and other off products of the pipe industry and memorabilia. With the new selection of tabacology you can easily admire the beauty of the objects surrounding the smoker. This link gives you direct access.
