Hundreds of thousands of porcelain pipes were manufactured from the mid-1700s through the early 1920s in Germany,

The porcelain tobacco pipe generally associated with Germany consisted of a porcelain bowl connected to a stem and to a hollow slightly V- or U-shaped chamber of porcelain, horn or wood, the bowl fitting into one opening of the chamber and the stem into the other opening. The purpose of the chamber, known as abguss, or reservoir, was to act as a repository for the juices and tar so as to improve the fragrance and taste of the tobacco.
