Danish Estates: Glads Sandblasted Bent Apple (by Stanwell) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-35878

A compact, yet robust take on the bent Apple, this piece from Stanwell's Glads brand is immediately reminiscent of the Tomato, with a thick, hearty bowl set prominently at the fore. Said bowl stands on a rounded heel and offers a mid-set waist with plenty of plumpness, its walls bowing out and arcing to the rim while offering plenty of insulation for the chamber. A wide transition out back gives way to a tapering, ovoid shank that curls up to meet a sleekly tapering stem of black vulcanite poised in a comfortable curve for easy smoking. Dressed in a crisp, inky sandblast, the stummel showcases handsome grain and rich texture.

During World War 2, while Europe was embroiled in turmoil, briar scarcity and limited international shipping meant that Danish pipe smokers couldn't obtain pipes from England. To fill this void, Poul Nielsen began making pipes out of beechwood under the name Kyringe. After the war, Nielsen transitioned to making briar pipes, and eventually changed his brand's name to Stanwell. Stanwell became an immensely popular marque that often collaborated with notable Danish artisans, like Sixten Ivarsson, Jess Chonowitsch, Anne Julie, and Tom Eltang.
