Old pipe collection on sale
11 November 2016
In Deuil-la-Barre, a poche Parisian suburb, a pipe collector lived until the 1980’s. He started with the collection of his father and continued himself in searching for additional acquisitions. After his death his daughter kept the collection of her father and grandfather, exposed in a grand oval neo-Louis-XVI table showcase. Now she has died on her turn, the collection comes up for sale. Last Tuesday was the final day at a local auction house. 110 Lots from this two-generation collection were auctioned. The Amsterdam Pipe Museum was present and able to buy a fine series of pipes of varied nature.
