David Jones Pty Limited, trading as David Jones (colloquially DJs), is an Australian upmarket department store, owned since 2014 by South African retail group Woolworths Holdings Limited.

David Jones was founded in 1838 by David Jones, a Welsh merchant and future politician, after he emigrated to Australia, and is the oldest continuously-operating department store in the world still trading under its original name. [1]

The following David Jones Sydney pipe is a straight forward canted belge made for the David Jones Department Store/Emporium of Sydney Australia. Who Made That Pipe Entry 6718/Sydney/Prescott (Comoy's)/England. Seems to be a nod to a factory on Prescott Street.
