Danish Estates: Stanwell Hand Made Smooth Chimney (81) (Regd. No.)
Product Number: 004-001-5777
While there are many Stanwell shapes we can name designers for (Sixten Ivarsson, S. Bang, Chonowitsch, etc.), the "81" Stack is not one of them. It doesn't help that this is but the third one we've ever seen, either new or as an estate, of course. Was this a shape never regularly exported to North America? Perhaps one discontinued long ago? Frankly, I don't know, though I should note that the one single example we did have "new" was actually part of a then (2003) long-discontinued line, which had been turned up in some obscure and forgotten corner of the old Copenhagen factory.
