Jansen's N.O. pipes were made by Comoy and GBD in the classic English shapes for the Jansen Pipe Shop in New Orleans. From the sketchy information I have been able to find "Ye Olde Pipe Shoppe" was on Chartes Street, in the French Quarter. At one time was one of the oldest pipe shops in the U.S., reported to have begun in the 1860's. The pipe shop was last run by Edwin Jansen, and was started by his grandfather August Jansen, an immigrant from Germany in the 1800's. They sold all the major brands plus the Jansen's store brand marked "JANSEN'S N.O.". When Edwin Jansen passed on in the early 1980's the shop was closed.
