Lorenzetti Pipes first started with Othello Lorenzetti in 1934, where he began to create some of the best handcrafted briar pipes. Even at one point, his pipes acquired the interest of Italian President Sandro Pertini, a known pipe connoisseur. To this day, Otello’s legacy lives on, as his grandson Alessandro Lorenzetti still carries on the tradition of crafting these beautiful briar pipes. One of their most prominent line of pipes, The Emperor Series, are named after five of Rome’s most famous Emperors; Nero, Constantine, Titus, Augustus Caesar, and Julius Caesar. Each sports its own unique finish, allowing you to find that perfect pipe, at a reasonable price!
