The Hilson pipe factory is sadly no longer in business, but their reputation ranks them with some of the best manufacturers of their day. The company made thousands of pipes a month at one point and were a staple in many collections. Because of their high volume sometimes groups of pipes got misplaced, or they fulfilled an order for a customer that never paid. At P&C we have access to these rare finds and are able to buy them at special pricing. Buy don’t let the price fool you, these are truly vintage pipes that were produced in the 1970’s. Hilson Vintage Special Grain pipes come from the top-quality grades of briar that were harvested decades ago. The shapes are classic Hilson and the grain will blow you away.
