Danish Estates: Bijou Sandblasted Tomato (by Stanwell) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-36181

This Tomato from Stanwell's discontinued Bijou line is an especially compact interpretation, measuring just under five inches in length. The bowl's squat, plump figure contours well to the hand, formed by thick, supple walls curving from the base toward the soft, rounded rim. Out back, a broad oval shank lifts out of the transition from the bowl and joins to a downturned saddle stem, the arrangement providing a comfortable clenching posture. Dressing the stummel is a distinctive finish, with the bowl flanked by a pair of scalloped, smooth-finished sections while the rest of the briar wears a dark, crisp sandblast.

Founded by Poul Nielsen, the Stanwell marque was a trailblazer for Danish pipe-making as it found its place on the global stage. During World War II, with briar supplies low and English pipes in short supply, Poul Nielsen sought to meet the needs of Danish pipe smokers by fashioning his own from beechwood under his company, Kyringe. Once the war was over and briar supply lines recovered, Nielsen changed the company's name to Stanwell, and the company would go on to collaborate with Danish pipe-making legends such as Sixten Ivarsson, Jess Chonowitsch, and Tom Eltang.
