Pipe Smoking Dutch Boy

I have a rather nice collection of this sort of plaque.
My favorite are the Dutch ones.
Today I found four.
This makes me happy, as I haven't seen any in a very long time.
My guess is that since it is Tulip Time in Holland, shop owners were putting all of their Dutch stuff front and center.
I find it weird that I like this one.
It's rather sick, really. A little boy smoking a pipe.

Great find! I absolutely detest smoking, and I didn't even notice it here--guess it just seems to fit the period!
