In 1848 Karl Ellenberger and his partner Carl August Ziener turned an idea into reality in Nuremberg. One of the first German pipe manufacturing company they produced tobacco pipes from selected woods for connoisseurs throughout the world.
The Vereinigte Pfeifenfabriken in Nuremberg (known in short as VPFN) was brought into being in 1901 with the amalgamation with the Gebhard Ott pipe factory founded in 1866, also in Nuremberg.
In this way a business was created under the management of Ernst Eckert, a scion of the founding family Ott, and its products and services were to attend and shape the culture of tobacco and smoking in Europe and overseas to the present day
