I was going by Tobbaco Pipes listing here, says made in Germany.

Also said made in Germany on the box. They do seem to have them made all over Europe however.
I understand.
As Rattray pipes are now owned by Kohlhose, Kopp & Co and as Oliver Kopp designs the shapes, that could very well explain the "Made in Germany". It's like the Stanwell pipes made in Italy since 2010 or 2011: the stamping now reads 'Danish Design' instead of 'Made in Denmark' rather than 'Made in Italy'. ;)
It does resemble some Molina pipes, so you are probably correct. It was a bit different from my other Italian pipes as the bowl was the smoothest I've ever seen, like it has been honed and polished it was so smooth, not a mark in it.
Guess I'll be on the hunt for a Vauen as I was after a German pipe for heritage reasons.
Any excuse for a new pipe works for me ;)
Well, I don't know if I'm correct. I'm only going by what Pipedia says about the brand. They're usually accurate but I don't know if they are 100% accurate, though. ;)
And I'm totally with you: any excuse for a pipe does work. :thumbs:

Lightly brushed teardrop shanked egg

Lightly brushed naked strawberry briar (the mole rat)

The rhodey has a nice texture. Starting to get some interesting colors too

The stubby tomato is one of my very favorites

Of course the big paneled meer

The Sasieni / Old England rustication has a great look and feel too. I have a straight apple with the same style as well

I have some rusticated Peterson. A Sherlock Holmes, a Sherlock Holmes Hansom, an XL305 system and a 315 system. I LOVE the XL305 and the Sherlock Holmes because of the deep and wide bowls, they really hold a lot of baccy! ;)
