KAPP & PETERSON

53-55, later, 111, later, 117, Grafton Street, and 55, South King Street, and 113, Stephen's Green, Dublin. 53, New Broad Street, London EC

Image
Kapp & Peterson - Dublin - 1897

Image
Kapp & Peterson - Dublin - 1917

Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp from Nurnberg founded their business, styled as Kapp Brothers, in Grafton Street, Dublin in c.1860. They specialised in the manufacture of Meerschaum and Briar Root pipes. They were later joined by pipe designer Charles Peterson and the firm was renamed Kapp & Peterson.

Charles Christopher Peterson was born on the 4th March 1852 at Riga, Latvia, he died on the 11th September 1919 at Hamburg, Germany.

Kapp & Peterson exhibited their products at the Paris International exhibition in 1900.

Kapp Brothers entered their mark (KAPP BROS) at the Dublin Assay Office in 1861, and Kapp & Peterson (K & P) in 1893.

Kapp & Peterson are still in business today.


Messrs. Kapp Bros., Sole Meerschaum and Briar Pipe Manufacturers In Ireland, 53. Grafton Street, and 55 and 56, South King Street

This well established and highly respectable firm of pipe manufacturers, Who are the proprietors of extensive, commodious, and fashionably fitted premises in Grafton Street, extending into South King Street, are one of the best known establishments connected with the cigar and tobacco trade in the fashionable and select quarter of the south side. To most non-smokers the peculiar attraction which the consumption of the tobacco-plant in its manufactured form possesses for its votaries must ever remain as a ''sealed book," but all will acknowledge how widespread the custom is, and how large a part the tobacco plays in creating the wealth and adding to the revenue of the country at large. How many minor pleasures would not the habitual smoker readily forego rather than give up his favourite enjoyment, and from the peer, in the smoking-room of his luxurious club, down to the peasant in his cabin, there is no section of society in which men may not be found who would probably more readily renounce their principal meal than the society and comforting influence of the weed. The late Charles Kingsley was one of the most ardent worshippers of the tobacco god, and perhaps there is not in the whole range of English literature a more magnificent eulogium on the use of tobacco than is to be found in that lamented and gifted writer's famous novel of " Westward Ho!" Those at least who agree with Canon Kingsley will admit that the man who does the most towards the furtherance of the practice of tobacco smoking should be looked upon as a kind of public benefactor, and though we should be slow even in jest to so much exaggerate its importance, we cannot fail to recognise with gratitude the great attention shown to the comforts of the tobacco-smoking public by the respected firm which is the subject of this notice. Messrs. Kapps premises are admirably stocked with all the heart of man can desire in the way of tobacco, the supply embracing, with a most commendable catholicity, every species of the weed, from the most expensive to the most moderate in figure. The firm claims to be the sole manufacturers of meerschaum and briar pipes in Ireland, and certainly the immense stock to be seen at their establishment justifies, if it does not entirely explain, the monopoly, as they do not possess one single piece of imitation in amber, meerschaum, or briar. The carving of some of the articles is simply perfect, the pipes being perfectly free from flaw or blemish, and recommending themselves, from an artistic point of view, to the commendation of the most cultivated taste. The firm, which was established in Dublin about fifteen years ago, has recently added, as an attraction to the Dublin public, a spacious and handsomely fitted billiard and smoking room, which is apparently much appreciated and largely patronised by the 'j.unsse dorée' of the Irish metropolis, and which has done much to augment the already large circle of supporters of which the house can boast. Messrs. Kapp are at present introducing a noted speciality in the shape of pipes made from Irish Meerschaum. The partners have entered into this branch with great zest, as its development may result in the building up of a new department of industry. The meerschaum is found near Collen, in the county of Antrim, and lies in flakes between the limestone rocks, from sixty to eighty feet underground. The quality of the commodity is really first-class, and already large numbers of orders have been received by the house for pipes made from this home product. The grain of the material is fine, and its weight and colour compare favourably with the great bulk of meerschaum procured from the East. Indeed, judging from the all-round excellence of the finished pipes made from this Irish meerschaum, it may be confidently predicted that Messrs. Kapp are certain to obtain a widespread sale for their productions in this department of their constantly expanding business. The quality of the cigars and tobacco sold by Messrs. Kapp is of the finest description, the former being selected as a stock with the utmost care, and can be guaranteed to be in the most perfect condition, as well as a large assortment of tobacco-pouches, cigar and cigarette-holders, novelty match-boxes, and other interesting objects generally to be found in shops of this description, at prices to suit all.
