Collectible Smoking Pipe VAUEN Emerald Genuine Briar. The year 1848 is considered to be the date of foundation of Vauen, when Karl Ellenberg and Karl Augustus Zener opened the first German company for the production of smoking pipes in Nuremberg. In the same place, in 1866, another pipe workshop was opened by Gebhart Ott. In 1909 the company launched a massive offensive against both the German and worldwide markets. Two years later, the firm faced a severe test: the white dot mark on the mouthpiece of the best Vauen pipes was challenged by Dunhill, who used a similar mark. Litigation lasted for several years, after which Vauen was allowed to use the “white dot” in the domestic market, and those going for export carry a larger ivory dot on the mouthpiece. One of the signature features of Vauen products is also a special lacquer coating of the surface (the composition is kept in the strictest confidence), which provides the tubes with a characteristic shine, but at the same time allows it to “breathe”. It’s not for nothing that Vauen pipes are compared to German cars. Talented Bavarian carvers provide them with an elegant design, and such a trait characteristic of the Germans as pedantry helps pipes to gain incredible reliability and excellent smoking properties. According to statistics, Vauen pipes are among the highest quality in the world, they rarely deteriorate and never burn through. Vauen smoking pipes have long taken their rightful place in the collections of the whole world along with such brands as STANVELL, DENICOTEA, PETERSON, SAVINELLI.
