“If I cannot smoke in heaven, then I shall not go,” Mark Twain once remarked about his favourite pastime, pipe smoking. Whether an original pipe model from the VAUEN Pipe Manufacture in Nuremberg belonged to his collection, we do not know. However, pipe connoisseurs from all around the world cherish the handcrafted masterpieces from VAUEN. The strike of the match, the sound, the flame, putting match to bowl. You do not inhale, but let it drift around your mouth; let it dissipate into the air. Pipe smoking has the lineage of millions of men and
women. There are rumours that even the Queen Mother loved her occasional pipe.
