Marokko: Smoker

On the Internet site Bienenmarken.de there is a Moroccan stamp from 1998 - 6 Dh - Mi. 1308. The subject on the stamp is "Moroccan ceramics". On the same site is also found, on the page "Beekeeper Philately" an article (part 19) from the club Arge Enthomology with the same stamp. And here the ceramic pictured is called a traditional bee smoker.

We have searched on the Internet site of the Morocco Post for information. Nothing at all. In the book "History of Beekeeping", by Eva Crane, is a picture of a traditional Algerian smoker. Now we are leaning, the conclusion is that indeed it is a Moroccan smoker that is illustrated on the stamp.
