The special collection of pipe moulds from the company Knoedgen from Brée, which our museum bought at the end of August via pipe factory Big Ben, have meanwhile been cleaned, registered and photographed. From now on they can be seen in the online database of our museum. A first study of this material gave a lot of new information about the factory history of Jean-Jacques Knoedgen. For example, it appears that quite a few moulds were originally made in Germany. Quite unexpectedly, tools from Gouda have also been found, for example from Prince, who sold production moulds to Belgium in 1897. However, there is still a lot of puzzling and studying to do before the history of these special set of tools is well mapped and a solid article can appear.
