The trusty pipe which Albert Einstein would chew on while pondering physics conundrums has emerged for auction and is tipped to sell for £8,000.
The physicist was rarely without his pipe which was his trademark alongside his disheveled look and wild hair.
Einstein famously claimed pipe smoking 'contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs'.
Even after being advised by his doctor to give up smoking he continued to carry one on his person and place it empty in his mouth where he would chew upon it.
