Tobacco as a colonial commodity
4 June 2015
The Noord-Brabants Museum in 's-Hertogenbosch opens an exhibition dedicated to the well-known colonial products: coffee, tea, tobacco and spices. The Amsterdam Pipe Museum sends in a series of loans to give content to the subject of tobacco. No less than 80 of our items will be exhibited and partly illustrated in the full-color catalogue. Our loans vary from pre-Columbian pipes to silver tobacco jars. A special object form our reserves is an intricate case of a pipe representative, that holds seven layers of drawers with twelve briar pipes each. It is the first time this case will be shown to the public.
