Old German Clay: Markus Fohr Dragon's Claw
Product Number: 002-557-0013
Clay pipe making has been in Markus Fohr's family for generations, and Markus continues that tradition, hand-pressing clay pipes in Montabaur, Germany. Such an approach pre-dates briar pipes, hearkening back to the old-school style of tavern pipes. In this piece, though, the typically seen Cutty, Belge, or Dublin bowl is traded for an intricate dragon's claw — a motif most often seen in meerschaum pipes, but it takes just as well to clay.
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.
