Personal objects were part of the everyday lives of cod fishermen. The tobacco habit was generalized and distributed by the officers to each of the crew members (3Kg of French tobacco was distributed to each fisherman).

"[…] Não é que o cigarro ajuda a passar o tempo? O “quarto” é tão comprido…o cigarro distrai; mas, atenção, o homem do leme deve estar muito atento ao governo, o vigia ao horizonte: então, ao leme e na vigia não se fuma. […]"

The pieces were donated to the Maritime and Regional Museum of Ílhavo, on 06/29/1925, by Manuel d'Oliveira Razoilo. The curiosity of this donation resides in the fact that it was realized previous to the foundation of the Museum in 1937.
