Portal enlarged with new photos
24 October 2022
For a long time it was silent about our initiative of the www.pipeportal.eu, the website in which the collections of several museums in the world can be viewed and searched as a whole. But today there is news: a museum collection has been added. And not just any one, a collection of world fame, but still unknown. The municipal museum of Saint-Omer in France has, hidden and unpublished, a unique collection of pipes. The factory showroom of the Duméril company was preserved after its closure in 1884 and was donated to the local museum in 1909. For the first time, these pipes are now widely presented. We have taken thousands of photos of these figural pipes and are now creating more awareness. More than 800 of the total of 1700 pipes are now in the portal. Come and see!
