Danish Estates: Stanwell Vario (12) (pre-2010) (9mm)
Product Number: 004-001-17501
The Billiard is one of the most common pipe shapes across all the various schools of shaping. That being said, each camp has its own signature variation. For the Danish school, that means taking classical English cues and proportions and smoothing out the lines considerably, producing a much plumper, softer iteration overall. Stanwell's "12" is an iconic example of that style and is seen here as part of the Vario series, wearing a light depth sandblast and accented by swaths of smooth, lightly stained briar. Strangely, the pipe is stamped "Royal Mat," but because this is clearly the Vario finish, it's that much more interesting with incorrect stamping.- Andrew Wike
