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.    

If you had asked me to identify this pipe without my glasses on, I might have said one Stanwell models created by S. Bang, Jess Chonowitsch or Anne Julie. Instead, it simply happens to be a recognizably Danish-inspired design from German make Vauen. Regardless of who conceived it, the pipe is a great shape, with a tall, plump bowl and a strong, but graceful, swan-neck bend curling up to its button. Like Stanwell pipes have often had, this Vauen has some beautiful flame grain around its bowl. Unlike any Stanwell design, it also has an original P-lip style stem.

This Vauen is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original 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.
