Acquisition in meerschaum
16 November 2018
Throughout the year are fixed moments that generate acquisitions. The annual Verzamelaarsjaarbeurs (collectors' fair) in Utrecht is such an event where something remarkable can always be found. This year we purchased a large meerschaum pipe bowl with a lion cut in high relief between the bowl and the stem. It seems that in this animal the Belgian lion is depicted and maybe this pipe was even made in Belgium. Meerschaum pipes still give a lot to discover, so that a somewhat broader study collection is desirable. This pipe bowl will therefore soon be shown on our online collection database under APM 23.901.
