Wally Frank, Ltd. was one of America's oldest and most respected names in pipes and tobaccos, beginning in the earlt 1930’s. Wally Frank operated a chain of tobacco stores in New York City (the flagship store was in Lexington Avenue) and had a vast catalog business for pipes and pipe tobaccos. Their numerous private-label pipes were made by many makers, including Charatan, Sasieni, Weber, and many others. Wally Frank, Ltd. also owned the [[Pioneer]] brand of meerschaum pipes, made from both Turkish and African meerschaum. In addition to importing pipes, he had many pipes made in his own name and also employed pipemakers like [[Stokkebye|Peter Stokkebye]], [[S. Bang|Svend Bang]], and [[Ed Burak]] (who later became the owner of [[Connoisseur]]). As a result, each Wally Frank pipe must be individually evaluated on its own merit.
