From Pipes, Artisans and Trademarks, by José Manuel Lopes'
Peretti is the brand of Robert A. Peretti, then owner of the L.J. Peretti Co., a tobacconist founded in Boston by his grandfather, L.Joseph Peretti in 1870. The first pipes made there date from the 1920s, and Robert began producing them in 1938.
The customers of this well known tobacco and pipe shop included the former British prime minister, Ramsey MacDonald, and also Bing Crosby, Basil Rathbone, Edward G. Robinson, and Walter Matthau.

Our own line of pipes are famous the world over for their outstanding value. The photos here represent a small sampling of our immense selection of shapes , sizes , and finishes.
Pick a price range, a shape, and a finish. We'll pick you out a pipe that will be sure to satisfy for years to come.
The majority of our smooth pipes are natural or unfinished and will darken over time bringing out their beautiful grain naturally.
