Missouri Meerschaum tobacco pipes are a storied piece of Americana.
Founded in 1869 in Missouri, the first corn cob pipes ever manufactured were produced by founder Henry Tibbe. The name “Missouri Meerschaum” was formed to reflect that the Missouri made corn cob pipes smoked in a similar fashion to Meerschaum pipes sought after in Europe.
Tobacco pipes from Missouri Meerschaum have been owned and endorsed by some of the most famous names in American history including Mark Twain, Presidents Hoover and Eisenhower, and even Popeye—the famous cartoon sailor. Although Missouri Meerschaum pipes are smoked all over the world today, they are a uniquely American example of craftsmanship and history. Read more about the Missouri Meerschaum history.
