Ceramic Pipe

In Gouda, Holland, there has been a long tradition of pipe making out of clay. It all started with the factory of the firm Zenith through Pieter van der Want in 1749, as he became master pipe maker of the Gouda pipemakers’ guild. The life of the company stretches in succession from father to son over eight generations, up until today.

I have just acquired one of their pipes – the Manhattan.
