Danish Estates: Royal Danish Smooth (215) (by Stanwell) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-36082

Stanwell's "215" bent Dublin is an uncommon one, its hearty silhouette showcasing a reserved sinuousness while maintaining an appreciable substance. The transition is wide, and it gives way to a lifting shank rendered in a gently tapering, triangular shape met by a demurely curved half-saddle stem of black vulcanite. This stem maintains the stummel's gentle undercurve and naturally draws the eye forward in tandem with the ridges lining the shank's flanks, these ridges extending to wrap around the lower bowl. A subtly lifted heel supports the bowl as it grows thick walls that flare slightly toward an undulating rim, offering plenty of space to showcase the stummel's warm stain in this piece from Stanwell's Royal Danish brand.

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.
