[[File:Mr. Samuel Weingott with the biggest briar ever found.jpg]]
 
J.Samuel Weingott was a famous Fleet Street Tobacconist (London, UK) who ventured into making amazing Briar smoking Pipes starting experimenting somewhere between 1865 and 1870 and finally opening his factory in 1883. According to an interview in an English magazine from 1899, Mr. Weingott, a true entrepreneur was dissatisfied with the common clay pipes of the time and disappointed with the continental Briar pipes that were not exploring the true potentialities of this wonderful root.

Prior to 1883 there was scarcely a single Briar pipe manufactured in England. They were all foreign made goods. Later that year, J. S. Weingott conceiving the possibilities that lay in such a non-competitive field, determined to manufacture pipes in England for English customers. His enterprise, at first was regarded askance by others in the trade, while many prognosticated disaster. Undeterred by these ominous forebodings, Mr. Weingott started his industry (S. Weingott & Son), and although it was an uphill struggle at first, he soon became one of the largest pipe factories in the country with a large colonial export: "''Only sixteen years have elapsed since I started my factory, and yet today the industry has grown to such proportions that the men employed in this trade throughout the country have instituted a Pipemaker's Union''" (from a 1899 interview to an English magazine).
