Old German Clay: Markus Fohr German Tavern Black Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-557-0004

For centuries, before the use of briar, clay was the primary material used for making pipes, and Markus Fohr's family has been crafting clay pipes in Montabaur, Germany, for generations. Here we have a traditional tavern pipe, offered in a rich, black finish, which calls to mind a certain Victorian-era Consulting Detective's legendary pipe.

Note: While all of our other pipes are photographed individually, these are not, and you may expect some reasonable cosmetic variation between the example we've photographed and the pipe you've received.

Markus Fohr Tavern is one of my favorite pipes. With a deep and wide bowl. At almost 9" in length it is a treat to smoke.

This pipe has risen to the top of my list, more than any other. Based on the words for a churchwarden pipe it other languages, long pipes were developed to keep the bowl and its smoke away from the face as you looked down at a book. I love this pipe ... Read More
