Last two weeks we produced several hundreds of photographs of the porcelain pipe bowls, the so-called ‘German stummel’ that are on permanent display in the front room of the museum. Reason that they haven’t been digitized yet is the time-consuming work of dismantling the showcases, a job that has to be done outside the regular opening hours. So, during the early morning and late evening we took on this task, which resulted in a great series of pictures. In remounting the porcelain pipes, we took the opportunity to replace some of them for newly acquired examples, for a better composition, more logical order and more attractive over-all esthetic result.
