Denoted as Paul L. Perri & Son, pipemakers, Manhattan Beach, CA. Paul is still making pipes at 93, and may be the oldest living pipe maker. He is well known in California, but less so in other parts of the country and the world. He has been a formative influence on a number of American pipe makers, including Trever Talbert. The sandblasted lovat shown bellow typifies Paul's work, which consists of larger classic shapes with slight twists here and there.
