Markus Fohr #51 – with ebonite stem – The Prussian Princess
This hand pressed clay pipe depicts a 19th Century Prussian Princess who, no doubt, was highly regarded by pipe smoking Berliners of that era.
Note: Photos of the white pipe are here to show the details of this pipe. The black version shown in the main photo is the product you will be purchasing.
A note on the Markus Fohr black pipes:
These pipes are made with the same white clay as the standard white Markus Fohr pipes, but have been finished in a separate process that smokes the finished pipe using wood chips resulting in a blacked pipe.
Heating this pipe on coals or in a stove as a way of cleaning will burn off the residue inside the bowl, but should not affect the black finish of the pipe. We do however, recommend simply letting the pipe air dry. Most M. Fohr pipes will accept a pipe cleaner, but great care must be taken to avoid breaking the stem.
