Pipe database

Welcome to the AIP pipe database. The purpose of this database is to share a wide variety of pipes of all materials, eras and places in the world. The database is aimed at collectors, researchers and enthusiasts alike, offering an overview of all pipes made. 


The database is image based meaning that you visually browse through the categories. A textual search is possible through the search bar in the upper-right corner of the page.

Of each pipe one image is provided accompanied with information on markings, dimensions and in which collection it resides. 

The information and amount of images per pipe is purposefully minimal. This makes it easier for contributors to share larger numbers of pipes from their collections, making the content of these -otherwise unseen- collections visible to the public.
