Stanwell Bench Made Peewit 54, Reg Era Smooth Estate Briar Pipe, Danish Estates [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


Stanwell is one of Denmark’s most celebrated and enduring pipe companies, having been founded by Poul Nielsen shortly after the second world war. Over the last six decades, Stanwell has established itself as both a leader in innovative Danish design and for producing well-priced pipes with precision construction and engineering. Many of its designs were created for the company by iconic pipe-makers in the Scandinavian scene, such as Sixten Ivarsson, Anne Julie, Jess Chonowitsch, and Tom Eltang.

Ah! The Peewit! Perhaps the single most famous design made by Sixten Ivarsson for Stanwell, and one revisited several times during that partnership in the form of several shape variations. This variation is the shape ’54,’ a shape introduced in the 1960s and, sadly, discontinued in the 1970s. The pipe itself is from the 1960s, having the Stanwell registration number in its nomenclature which was not used in the 1970s. Fun fact: in the 1960s, the man responsible for carving the Sixten Ivarsson shapes for Stanwell was Poul Hansen, one of Ivarsson’s own former students, who also made pipes of his own, which were often sold through Pipe Dan (Danish: Pibe Dan). Anyway, it’s a marvelous pipe, with plenty of beautiful, bird’s-eye grain.

The condition is very good. There’s some minor rim darkening and fading to the rim’s finish, but this is superficial and won’t affect the pipe’s smoking properties, nor its beauty.
