Danish Estates: Stanwell Xmas Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver (2012) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-34745
During World War 2, when briar was in short supply, Danish pipe smokers were unable to acquire pipes from England. Poul Nielsen began fashioning pipes out of beechwood under the name Kyringe, to fill the void in the market. After the war, Nielsen began making briar pipes and and changed the company's name from Kyringe to Stanwell. Stanwell became a hugely successful brand that collaborated with some of the most notable names in Danish pipe making, including Sixten Ivarsson, Jess Chonowitsch, Anne Julie, and Tom Eltang. This bent Dublin was Stanwell's Xmas pipe for 2012, and it represents the brand's style quite well. Shape-wise, this piece sees a tall, flaring bowl posed at the fore of an upturned shank and a demurely curved tapered stem. A smoky smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights gorgeous grain across the briar's surface, while gleaming silver accents adorn the shank end and stem base, and provide a bit of flash to the overall form.--Davin Hylton
