1919 - 1989. Founded in 1919, it was originally known as Davies & Huybrecht. One of the smallest and most obscure of the older British pipe makers. Their pipes were available only from Smith's Snuff Shop in London. Each pipe was offered without the stem and the customer then specified the stem he wanted.
In the early 1990's the last Mr. Huybrecht retired and passed away a few years later. He left over a 100 bowls. All were unstained and without stems. In June of 2006 we located the old bowls and are slowly having them stained and stemmed. The mouthpieces are hand cut Vulcanite and every pipe is stamped "London Castle, G. Huybrecht".
These pipes are the last of an 80 year old tradition of British pipe making. They are classic British shapes and smaller, averaging Group 3-4 size. When they are gone, they are gone. This is your opportunity to own a part of British pipe making history.
Historical Note. British Prime Minister, ( 1964-1970, 1974- 1976), Sir Harold Wilson smoked mainly G. Huybrecht pipes (Zulu shape was his favorite).
