Danish Estates: Bijou Sandblasted Bent Dublin (by Stanwell) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-35919

Part of Stanwell's Bijou line of pipes, this bent Billiard is a subtly curved, Zulu-like take on the shape whose heel, shank, and stem are rounded by a wrapping ridgeline. This ridge flows through the flanks of the subtly curved shank and stem and wraps around the fore of the heel, nicely, highlighting the bowl's easy flare to the rim. Dressed in a crisp sandblast and a jet-black stain, the stummel showcases handsome grain throughout.

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.
