Celius 175, Handmade Sandblasted Egg, Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


Celius pipes were hand made in the workshop of Svend Axel Celius, one of the first generation of iconic carvers in the Danish style that emerged in the mid-20th century. Beginning his career under Poul Rasmussen and Sven Knudsen, Celius later started his own brand of pipes using his last name, while also occasionally carving pipes for Denmark’s famous pipe tobacconist W.Ø. Larsen.

While Celius was known primarily for his freehand-style pipes, he did also create other, relatively conservative designs, such as this one. I say ‘relatively’, as this is still a pretty Danish pipe. It’s a straight brandy of sorts, but the bowl is more curvaceous than the traditional brandy shape. It could almost be called an ‘egg’, which was a very Danish approach to bowl shaping. In either case, it’s also a very large pipe, being nearly seven inches in length. Suffice it to say, it is well suited for long smokes. The sandblasting is nice and crisp, with some lovely ring grain around the bowl, which is accentuated by the tan hue of the stain.

Aside from a few handling marks around the bowl and some very minor inner rim darkening, the stummel is in great shape. The vulcanite stem has one or two small tooth marks, but nothing that would affect the smoke or affect the pipe’s longevity. If you like your pipes big and with a little Danish flair, this could be just the one for you.
