The Nurnberg brothers Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, whose elegant Dublin tobacconist first opened for business in 1865 at Grafton Street, Dublin could scarcely have dreamt that they would participate in the birth of a legend.

Friedrich & Heinrich, who christened their shop simply ‘Kapp Brothers’, soon made a name for themselves making and selling quality Meerschaum and Briar Root pipes. It was not long before Charles Peterson, walked into Kapp Brothers Grafton Street premises armed with a revolutionary pipe and ambitious plans for the future.

There and then, Peterson suggested that the brothers go into partnership with him to turn his pipe dream into the world’s dream pipe. They agreed and the company was renamed Kapp & Peterson. Kapp and Peterson went on to become Dublin’s most fashionable and respected manufacturer and purveyor of fine smoking products. Pipe and cigar smokers would stroll down to the elegant premises for professional advice on the subtle nuances that determine a good handmade cigar or pipe. The Peterson brand was embraced by politicians, business leaders, sportsmen, artists and writers.

The skills and craft which Charles Peterson applied to his original invention are continued by the dedicated team of craftsmen at Peterson today. Whether as a gift for a friend or for your own personal use, you will appreciate the excellence of the Peterson range of cigars, tobaccos, pipes and smoking accessories.

Actually, The Peterson Co. offers since 80 various shapes of pipes – some pipes are meerschaums in prevalence classic style. More of them are named like counts, islands or Irish cities, and rusticate pipes gives impression to be rough as Moher’s reef.

Another partner of company is the English producer “Duncan Briars”, but for him are produced few models. The Peterson pipes have proposed in many qualities and different prices. The valuable pipes have golden silver stem or gold ring and when these pipes have exported for determines Countries, the stove-pipe has not worked with coal-powder. The amateurs of pipe can taste immediately that the wood has not flaws into the pipe.

Peterson first introduced the Sherlock Holmes pipe in 1987 to celebrate the centenary of the Great Detective, so began the best-selling mystery in pipe history. A man who keeps his tobacco in a Persian slipper has to be something of a character. A colourful one to boot as indeed is Mr. Sherlock Holmes of 221B Baker Street, London. Holmes is perhaps the most famous pipe smoking character in fiction. He kept a selection of favourite pipes from black clay to richly grained briar.

For inspiration, in penetrating a mystery or solving a knotty problem. For solace, after bringing a difficult case to a successful conclusion… and always for pleasure.

These pipes are handcrafted in Ireland from specially selected Mediterranean briar. Each pipe is mounted with a genuine Hallmarked Sterling Silver band and Sherlock Holmes stamp, specially struck to honour the Great Detective.

The Kapp & Peterson Company seems to represent the present Ireland Country, with a mix of traditional and modern elements. Today the Company has a stable economic position into the European Community.
