Making an Upshall


The James Upshall Pipe Company UK Limited, is pleased to announce the distribution of James Upshall Pipes in the United States.

Just as in previous years, each James Upshall Pipe is hand turned by Master  Craftsman Barry Jones.

All pipes, from the Tilshead to our Highest Grades, are made from naturally cured  Grecian Plateau Briar

The James Upshall Pipe Company never has nor ever will use pre-turned bowls.

All of our pipes are hand made from start to finish in the United Kingdom.

These fine smoking pipes are hand-made in Tilshead, a little village in Wiltshire, deep in the English countryside. Here the noble art of hand-turning traditional pipes continues.

All our pipes are created from supreme Plateau Briar-Root by a small and dedicated team of highly skilled artisans who love their craft.

The briar burls which grow wild in the Greek mountains are matured and naturally dried, a treatment reserved only for the cleanest and fullest Grained Plateau.

Each briar is a piece of nature which has to be cut and worked accordingly to capture its true perfection.

Our skilled turner will transform the cut block forever striving to obtain perfect straight grain bowls.

After the name James Upshall has been engraved, the bowl is finally polished with swans down and packed in soft leather for protection.


Although each pipe is individually turned and therefore unique, we try to adhere to the traditional English classics which will always be in great demand.


Quality and Tradition at its Best
