Comoy’s 182 Pebble Grain Billiard

The Gentleman’s Choice Since 1825

“The Comoy trademark is one of the oldest in the pipe industry dating back to 1825 and is respected as some of the finest pipes made.

“It all started back in the early 1800’s by Francois Comoy who began making pipes out of briar roots in St. Claude, France – Frances was one of the first pipe makers to make pipes of briar roots. Francois’ son Henry, moved the business to London in the late 1800’s and with help of some of his brothers became very successful as a pipe maker and was credited with being the author of the appellation “London made”. The Comoy pipes were initially launched in the U. S. market in the early 1920’s, and were in the 1980’s one of the best selling pipe lines in the U.S.” (source: http://comoypipes.com/)

Claude and his son Louis discovered that briar had vastly superior qualities and, from 1848, made pipes only in this wood. In 1879, Francois’ son, Henri, who was born in 1850, moved to London with a small bag of tools but a great deal of experience. Henri set up a small factory in Seven Dials, which is today known as Cambridge Circus. He was one of the prime movers in the establishment of the briar pipe trade in London and is credited with being the author of the appellation “London Made.” He was helped at first by some of his brothers and, around 1891, was joined by his two nephews, Louis and Charles Chapuis. Louis took the name of his adoptive parents. By 1895, the business had outgrown the Seven Sisters site, and a new factory was built in Newcastle Place, Clerkenwell. By 1905, markets were being sought in America, and the extra business required a new factory to be built in 1913 at 72 Rosebury Avenue…
