Markus Fohr Clay Pipe #12 White – Clay Bulldog Pipe
Markus Fohr is a pipe maker who lives in Montabaur, Germany, about 70 Miles from Frankfurt, Cologne and Düsseldorf in the region of Westerwald.
His family has been making clay pipes for generations. He uses the fine white clay of the region which has been prized for centuries and is used to create the famous pottery of this region.
Some of the molds used are originals going back 240 years.
“I make pipes in the traditional way…” Markus Fohr
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 with a black coating.
We do not recommend heating this pipe on coals or in a stove as a way of cleaning since the black coating will burn off leaving you with a white clay pipe. Simply let the pipe air dry. Some of these pipes may accept a pipe cleaner, but great care must be taken to avoid breaking the stem.
