From a tobacco catalog associated with Drucquer & Sons Ltd shops in Berkeley and Oakland, California:

"DRUCQUER'S pipe shop was founded by John Druc­quer in London in 1841. At that time he could have had no idea of how his small enterprise would evolve. As the business was tended and knowledgeable smokers in the London of that day became aware of the quality of Drucquer tobaccos, his shop grew to be a renowned establish­ment, second to none. All manner of folk came in to browse, fill their pipes from the dozens of jars and relax in the very special atmosphere of a to­bacconist's shop."
