Old German Clay Pipe #4

$19.99$21.99 plus tax where applicable

The Old German hand-rolled clay pipe #4

With a bowl height of 1 and 5/8 inches this classic tavern pipe will hold a bowlful of tobacco to rival most briar pipes and it will offer a fresh taste to any tobacco blend you desire to smoke.

If you are a fan of the AMC show Turn: Washington’s Spies, you will have seen similar clay pipes appear in the tavern scenes. Although this pipe is made in Germany, it has an English tavern pipe design that would have been popular in the 18th century American colonies and may even have been introduced in the colonies by Prussian soldiers*. (*That’s just speculation on the part of old Ken.)

Note: If the pipe color is not shown in the option drop down, that variation is not available.

OLD GERMAN CLAY PIPE #4 by Markus Fohr

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 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.
