Danish Estates: Stanwell Sandblasted Lumberman with Silver (Hold) (pre-2010) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-36068

It's very seldom that we see Lumberman renditions from Stanwell, though other Billiard and Canadian variants are fairly common among their work. The transition is wide, and it gives way to the silhouette's iconic, extended oval shank and short saddle stem, the latter's black acrylic meeting the shank at a junction wrapped with a generous band of silver. Up front, the bowl stands on a firm heel and grows nearly cylindrical walls up to a flat rim, the upper bowl marked with a subtle taper and easy forward cant. Dressed in a jet-black stain and a striking sandblast, there's plenty of texture to appreciate here, along with a truly incredible ring grain pattern cascading down the bowl.

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.
