Description: A Dutch antique silver pipe lighter (Zilver Pijpenkomfoor), made by Jacob van Nieuwcasteel in Utrecht in 1797. The silver frame is circular, beautifully decorated with pierced flowers and a reeded design, on 3 legs. It is fitted with a copper dish, which is fastened to a wooden mahogany base with 3 feet, by an iron screw with 2 leather circular nuts. The hallmarks are clear, and include makers mark IVN, Utrecht town mark struck twice (grote keur), and date letter Z for 1797. A very similar pijpenkomfoor, made by Jacob van Nieucasteel in 1816, is present in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, described as follows "Pijpenkomfoor van zilver op blad van mahoniehout en met binnenbak van rood koper. Gewelfd en aan beide zijkanten iets oplopend. Vier gebogen poten, Jacob van Nieuwcasteel, 1816". Van Nieucasteel worked between 1790 and 1818, his work is preserved in numerous museums. These items are also found in the Cape made by Dutch silversmiths, referred to as "Tessies".
