Henri Pieper

To the Pieper heirs:

Though my research of a 10 guage shotgun, I found that it was made in Leige, Belgium by Anciens Esablissment Pieper in 1882. Henri Pieper of that area made many shotguns during the "Golden Age of Shotgunning" as "Trade Brand Name" and shipped them all over the world. The Pieper Company was in business from 1866 to 1957.

Does anyone have information on Henri Pieper or the business he established in Leige?

Thanks.
