Danish Estates: Stanwell Partially Sandblasted Billiard (DM) (2014) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-36001

Pipes from Stanwell stamped with the "DM" designation are unique pieces specifically made to be used during the Danish Pipe Smoking Championships, each stamped with the year the design was smoked for the competition. This sleek, oval-shanked Billiard was crafted for the 2014 competition and is a charming take on the timeless form. The upright bowl contains a respectably deep chamber within its walls, and its pairing to an oval shank and tapered stem ensures the visual weight is rooted at the fore. The light-depth sandblast maintains the shape's clean lines while coaxing out a handsome array of undulating grain around the bowl, all beneath a deep, earthy stain.

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.
