Exhibition dedicated to flowers on tobacco pipes
26 March 2014
The Amsterdam Pipe Museum organizes a small exhibition dedicated to flowers and bouquets on tobacco pipes, entitled "Painted Flowers". The porcelain pipe bowl or Stummel is meant for a painting and although you would not expect such a thing in a man's item like a pipe, the painting of flowers was apparently very popular in the 19th century. The German porcelain painters created real works of art on a small scale. The exhibition starts today and last until 31st May 2014.
