Vauen Nova 33 Smooth Bent Pot 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.

Not to be confused with Dunhill’s White Spot, Vauen’s White Dot (weißer Punkt) signifies, per the company, “elaborately produced
pipes and pipes with a particularly attractive grain.” This Nova from Vauen’s high end production reminds me a little of Sixten Ivarsson’s shape 11 for Stanwell, or perhaps Castello’s shape 55, but with a more angular side profile and a general art deco aesthetic. It’s a great pipe, and I really like the slightly beveled rim, which seems to be a lost design element for today’s pipes.

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.
