This week, the changing display case in the centre of the museum room is filled with a group of six Ulmer Kloben. These are pipes that have been added to our collection relatively recently, but have not yet been seen by anyone. They come from a renowned German collection. What binds the pipes, in addition to the similarity in shape, is the beautiful red-brown burr walnut wood and the impressive decoration with silver fittings in relief. At the time, they were the status of the proud owners who flaunted them on Sundays and holidays. That custom has now passed for a century and they have become full-fledged museum pieces. Come and have a look and convince yourself of its unexpected beauty.
