Danish Estates: Santana Smooth Bent Dublin (by Stanwell) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-35895

This bent Dublin from Stanwell's Santana brand is a unique piece, not only for its eye-catching silhouette but for its strikingly slender construction. The stummel here is remarkably compact, with a pert, slim bowl that flares nicely from its firm heel to a flat rim. A wide transition pairs the bowl to an extremely brief shank that lifts subtly to meet a flaring, domed fitment of swirling yellow acrylic. This fitment also acts as a military mount for the sleek, lengthy stem of black vulcanite to which the stummel is paired. Dressed in a warm stain, the stummel displays handsome grain throughout, its acrylic mount lending the palette some alluring contrast.

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.
