Vauen 3939 Smooth Bent Volcano Sitter Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked, 9mm [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


Vauen stems from Germany’s oldest tobacco pipe manufacturing company, tracing its roots back to the founding partnership of Karl Ellenberger and Carl August Ziener in Nuremberg, 1848. Out of the Ellenberger-Ziener partnership soon came the Vauen make itself, which grew to become Germany’s largest and most enduring pipe brand – a title that it continues to hold to this day.

This is a beautiful little volcano from Vauen. Curiously – and I may be biased here – it reminds me of Sixten Ivarsson’s shape ’37’ volcano for Stanwell. This one is a more muscular shape, however, partly owing to the wider shank used to house a 9mm filter. This is also one of the first Vauens I’ve seen with a tortoiseshell acrylic stem, rather than a black ebonite or acrylic one.

This Vauen is also completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original box and sleeve. As with most Vauen pipes, it is chambered for 9mm filters, such as Vauen’s own or Savinelli’s balsa filters. It should also accommodate some variety of adapter for non-filter use, if the user prefers.
