Pipe stopper signet ring
23 July 2012
This signet ring is absolutely a rare object. Not only does it have a personal sign but on the backside a pipe stopper is placed. So this archaeological find from the old centre of Amsterdam combines a signet ring and a handy pipe stopper in one object that enables the smoker to enjoy his pipe. This shows the importance of pipe smoking in those days. A rare object that dates to about 1650.
