The European Porcelain Tobacco Pipe: Illustrated History for Collectors

Be the first to review this product

Here is the first illustrated retrospective of the storied evolution and continental acceptance of the porcelain pipe. The history of these beautiful pipes is covered in over 145 brilliant photos and detailed, informative text, from their revolutionary introduction as early objets d'art to their eventual eclipse as twentieth century kitsch. While the history, manufacture, and use of clay, meerschaum, and briar tobacco pipes have been thoroughly documented, the authors have now crafted a chronicle about porcelain tobacco pipes. This pipe originated with an eighteenth-century, European design developed in France and in Germany and its production spanned roughly 250 years. Porcelain pipes for student life, sporting coats of arms, commemorating military campaigns, adorned with a wide range of flora and fauna, and much more are illustrated and described. Whether you are a pipe smoker, pipe collector, or someone who appreciates antique and vintage porcelain objects, this vivid narrative is a fascinating read.
