Clay pipe from wreck of Liefde, Shetland 3D Model
Dutch clay pipe bowl, DG-83-7
On the 7th November 1711 the Dutch East Indiaman, Liefde (The Love), was wrecked on the south side of Mio Ness, Housay, Out Skerries. There was only one survivor. Find out more about Liefde at http://bit.ly/2Cq5eiz When maritime archaeologists investigated the shipwreck, they recorded over 50 clay pipe bowls, together with the 16 best examples of decorated stems. The total number of pipe fragments found was over 600. All of these are covered with a range of shapes and marks, suggesting that these pipes were personal possessions rather than cargo.
