Weckmann #41 Large
These clay tobacco pipes have images of a Knight on one side of the bowl and a Bishop on the other. In Germany, these pipes are sometimes used by bakers for the St. Martin’s Day festival. The bakeries in Bavaria bake thousands of small confections shaped like a Bishop who is holding a clay pipe. Small clay pipes are baked into the sweet dough.
These large pipes would be incorporated into a very large version of the baked good, not necessarily for sale, but for placing in the shop window to advertise the availability of the small Weckmann confections.
