Pipe Marks recorded
24 March 2017
During the last part of the Winter session of photography we recorded the heel marks of the oval pipe bowls from Gouda. These trademarks, in diameter measuring less than half a centimeter, are really dull, but since photos are made with a good macro lens you can study them in detail. Combined with the reference book by Don Duco on Gouda pipe makers and their marks, the Amsterdam Pipe Museum offers a unique set of information. With this study collection any archaeologist, professional and amateur alike, will be able to date and identify pipe finds in their ground layers.
