Old German Clay Pipes is owned and operated by Markus Fohr 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.
