Stanwell: Army Mount Smooth Red (19)
Product Number: 002-034-7796
The army mount came about during WWI, when pipes were everywhere (including in the trenches), and excepting figural designs and some traditional, regional styles (Tyrolean, etc.), the classic French/English shapes were pretty much the only thing going. As such, it's not surprising that to this day if you see a pipe with such a mount, it's most likely to be one that doesn't differ too much from shapes you could find on a hundred year old chart. We now consider it a classic feature, and so we tend to stick it on classic shapes, often seeing it as a way to emphasize their classicalness
. But here Stanwell throws that out the window and gives us one of the most modern and dynamic of the designs Sixten Ivarsson ever drew up for them, the "19".
