The Feuerzeug was a huge success, with an estimated 20,000 in use by 1828.Originally published in Pipe Smoker, Winter 1984, with a part of the guide re-published in the Spring 2005 issue of Pipes and Tobaccos. Please note: Scanning the text from the original article has presented problems, some of which I have not been able to solve. The bruyere finish was used on these pipes through 1929; root finish was used thereafter. Shape numbers during this period had either 3, 4, or 5 digits. 1976-77: During this period the group number and finish code were dropped and the old shape numbers were dropped in favor of a new system.Much of the spacing in this presentation is not as intended. NOTE: For the years 1925-34 other patent numbers were sometimes used in place of 119708/17 & 116989/17. Shape numbers during this period had either 3, 4, or 5 digits.The lighter wasn’t invented until 1823 by a German chemist named Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner.He created the precursor to the lighter, which he called the Feuerzeug (often referred to as ‘Döbereiner’s Lamp’).
