The Cassano brand was established in 1926 when Enrico Ceresa, coming back from St Claude (France)
, modernized his father's (Gerolamo) factory built in 1919 in Cassano Magnago. As soon as 1929 his brother Pietro emigrated to Brazil looking for new markets. The business appreciably developped in the 1930s thanks to an strong export policy (USA, Germany, Denmark, England ...). In 1970, Carlo Ceresa
, son of Enrico manages the Fabbrica Pipe di Carlo Ceresa & C.

Artisan: Svend Axel Celius († 1999) started learning his craft about 1960 at Suhr's Pibemageri. He opened his own pipe manufacture in 1963 but closed down for unknown reasons in the middle of the 1970's. Celius continued to realize pipes alone until the late 1980's.
Two important pipe lines:
- The "Fantasy" (sometimes stamped "Fancy") which are eccentric freehand shapes.
"Fantasy" line grading (ascending): from 1 to 6
- The "Chess" line is the most important and their gading follow chess pieces.
"Chess" line grading (ascending): Pawn (sand-blasted), Rook, Knight, Bishop, Queen and King.
Other markings on Celius pipes:
"Root" correponds to plateau rim pipes
The numerical code on "Chess" pieces designates the shape.
Some pipes are stamped "Zenia". They occured after his daughter's birth and are named for her.
"Randsborg" or "Randsborg crafted" is a crazy stamping having no special meaning.

Century Old, Imported Briar
The "Century Old
" designation generaly appears with different labels of the Lorenzo
brand (see: Jet Pipe
etc.) and was possibly reserved for export models. But in this case the designation is not accompanied.
Artisan: Luciano Cerrato (born 1917) started as a hobby pipe maker in the early 1960s. After he retired from his job -he was turner- he produced steadily 150-200 pipes/year. Luciano's curved drillings are renowned.
