In 1887, Henri Vuillard opened his pipe production shop in St.Claude, France. In subsequent years, the shop was passed down through the family line until 1988 when the Cuty-Fort Group took control of the company. Vuillard pipes come in many shapes, styles, and sizes, but are always some of the highest quality French pipes available and made from the finest briar. Vuillard is the one of the most popular French pipe brands in the world. At one point, these tobacco pipes were even supplied to the French army. A Vuillard pipe would be a great piece for anyone seeking out a fine French pipe.
