The Charatan Story

In 1863 Frederik Charatan, opened a shop in Mansell Street, London where he began to carve Meerschaum Pipes. These got popular very quickly and Charatan moved to a bigger workshop in Prescot Street. Here he began to make the Briar Pipes that made Charatan world famous. On the retirement of his father in 1910 Reuben Charatan took over the family business and the business was wholly owned by the Charatan family until 1960.
