Private museum of a manufacturer
28 June 2020
Still in Germany, today a visit to collector and pipe manufacturer Anton Manger in Wollbach. In the front part of his former pipe factory, this true pipe enthusiast has set up a museum, which has become a bit messed up due to the vast numbers, but is certainly astonishing . The focus is on Ulmer Kloben and other pipes from that region in addition to porcelain pipes, especially from Ruhla. We were pleased that, contrary to previous visits, Manger was now willing to part with some of the pieces from his long cherished collection. After negotiations we left with some thirty characteristic pipes in wood, porcelain and other materials. An unexpected souvenir of an impressive visit.
