Danish Estates: Zenia Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver (Queen M) (by Celius) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-35172

Svend Axel Celius is a name that isn't always uttered when the forebears of Danish design are spoken of, though he began making pipes under his own name in 1963, one of the first exemplars of the Danish Fancy style. One of the main suppliers of these Fancy pipes to the United States, Celius enjoyed success over the years and sold his company to Jens Peter Ransborg in the 1970s. After a few years, Celius returned to pipe manufacturing, working with briar until his death in 1999 or 2000. In addition to Celius brand pipes, the workshop additionally produced pieces under a line called Zenia, which are named after Svend's daughter and showcase more classic looks. This particular Dublin is a good example of the line's pipes, with a timeless silhouette and elegant appointments. A sleek shape, this pipe is a rather bowl-forward iteration of its chart-standard, though its ovoid shank and stem combination add a touch more muscularity to its look when viewed from the smoker's perspective. A wide transition gives way to this shank, one which tapers toward a junction marked by a broad band of silver and is paired to a similarly tapering stem of jet-black vulcanite. Up front, the bowl sits on a firm heel and cants forward gently while taking on a defined flare toward the broad rim, its thick walls offering plenty of room to showcase the stummel's warm stain.
