NOTE: The shape numbers used in this new, Stanwell system are not consonant with their numbering system used in the 1960's-70's. Don't compare numbers in the OP's list with the numbers given in this newer catalog. Some may be a hit, but many/most will be a mismatch.

Your comment about shape numbering seems wrong. If this was true then, for example, they couldn't qualify the #32 Bulldog as an early 90's Eltang redesign of a 1942 #32 Bulldog shape by Sixten. That was their first commercial pipe shape! And yes it was numbered 32. Dunhill created a new numbering scheme in 1976. No shape remained with the same number. Stanwell has not done that and it's why one can talk about Sixten shapes with shape numbers. Now the question should be did they discontinue some shapes and then reassign the number?

That's what I was thinking. The shapes that weren't discontinued seem to to have the same number, but others seem to have been reassigned. Which is why I said that some will be a hit and some will be a miss.

At any rate, this is a Library thread. Keep the chatter to a minimum. The Librarian is a brute. Start another thread. It could be interesting.

I think this is more research and useful commentary about the Stanwell shape numbers and it belongs here in the library with the list. Perhaps we end up with a clearer statement of aspects of Stanwell's numbering?

Dating Information
  1. Regd. No. stamping discontinued in late 1960s to very early 1970s. This is the Stanwell trade mark registration. The “48” indicates that the registration was made in1948. (info rec’d from Jorgen Grundtvig, Managing Director, Stanwell A/S)
  2. Block letter stamp “Silver S” used until late 1960s and then changed to script.
  3. Up until the early 1960s only the top pipes, e.g. “Hand Cut” had the stem/mouthpieces stamped with the Stanwell logo of a crown over “S”. The “Hand Cut” is stamped on the shank of the pipe. The “Standard Models” may or may not be stamped with the “S” logo without the crown.
  4. “Stanwell” stamp in script dates to the 1950s.
  5. Progression of the Stanwell logo is: “S” in white paint; crown “S” in white paint; brass crown “S” and finally a silver crown “S”.
  6. “Handcut” stamped on black vulcanite stems have not been done since at least the 1970s and possibly earlier. (info from J.G.).
  7. Currently, the only mouthpieces that have “Handcut” stamped on them are made of Cumberland rod and are used exclusively on the “Unique” line of pipes. (info from J.G.)
  8. Early Stanwell/Winslow pipes were stamped with a “W”. In later years, this has been changed to a “Winslow” stamp.
  9. Stanwell started using acrylic for their mouthpieces in 1995 and identified the acrylic stem with a “dot” following the Stanwell crown “S” logo. This practice has been discontinued.
  10. Benni Jorgensen, father of Lasse Skovgaard, has been doing the Stanwell repairs since1995. Prior to this, they were done by Tom Eltang.

More Recent Grading (through to mid 1990s)

Hand Cut
This line of Stanwells was manufactured in the early to mid 1980s and was part of their “Specialty” line. They were priced approximately 2.5 times more than the top-of-the-line Silver S series. What sets these pipes apart from theSilver S series is that the mouthpieces were made of Cumberland rod. Not only that, but the mouthpieces were hand-cut by the likes of Tom Eltang, Peter Hedegaard, Jess Chonowitsch, etc., the handmakers for each individual pipe in their own shop. The Hand Cut series was available in both smooth and a blast finish. The underneath of the stem is stamped “handcut”; the stem carries the Stanwell crown over S logo in brass. The shank is stamped “Stanwell” over “Made in Denmark”. It should be noted that none of these pipes had a Stanwell shape number stamped on the shank, as is the Stanwell tradition.

Silver S
Do you remember the Silver S - Stanwell's very finest line until they were discontinued some 10 years ago? No nonsense pipes with great wood and an almost natural virgin finish. And obviously fitted with the famous silver S in the stem.

Golden Contrast
An old series. The blocks are cut on the cross grain. The pipes from this series exhibit Birds Eye grain only. Brass band and brass S in the stem. The pipes have a two-tone staining which really shows the beautiful bird’s eye grain. However, this staining simply takes too much work so the series is discontinued.

Bamboos in general
All of the Stanwell Bamboos made during the 1970s were crafted by a Mr. Larsen.
He sometimes, in order to unify bamboo and bowl-shape, gave the pipes a freehand touch. (Søren Lundh Aagaard,Managing Director, Stanwell – email of 08-05-16)

Bamboo Smooth
Bamboo is probably the best-known of Stanwell's pipes. The bamboo shank gives an extra dry smoke and will darken when smoked. Good wood with excellent sandblasting or smooth with beautiful grain. Most of the smooth pipes are golden light brown and a few are darker brown.

Bamboo Sandblast

Brazilia Sandblast

Brazilia Smooth

Golden King

Brass Band Smooth
Brass Band is one of Stanwell's older series - fine pipes with decoration of 2 brass rings separated with a ring of Cumberland, and brass S imbedded in the stem. The series is no longer made.

Brass Band Sandblast

De Luxe

Royal Prince

Royal

Danish Star

Antique

Freehand
All Freehands were originally cut in factory by Poul Hansen. All Sixten Ivarsson designed shapes were cut in factory by Poul Hansen. (info from Jess Chonowitsch to Mike Glukler, Chicago, 1996)

Free Style
Free Style is the name we are using for individual pipes, either in shape or in finish, made by our internal pipemakers. During the year they are making a lot of experiments with finishes and rings etc. “When we don't need these samples any longer we sell them. We group them in 3 categories: A, B and C. A being the most expensive and C the least expensive." (info rec’d from J.G., 05-11-21)


Additional notes from Jorgen Grundtvig

Golden S
This series was last produced in the mid to late 1970s. Its distinguishing mark was an 18 carat gold Stanwell logo, crown and “S”, on the mouthpiece. (email 06-05-19)

Danish Sovereign
This is a Stanwell 2nd that was marketed only in the United States and Canada. This line has 3 “X”s (and no more), stamped on the mouthpiece. (email 06-05-19)

“An Ivarsson Product”
Ivarsson shapes, especially when they were sold to Japan, were stamped in this way. Ivarsson had a very good and special reputation in Japan. (email 06-05-19)


Competition Markings

Pipes stamped with DM and a year, are ones that were made for the Danish Pipe Smoking Championship.

Pipes stamped with NM and a year, are ones that were made for the Nordic/Scandinavian Pipe Smoking Championship.

Pipes stamped with FM are ones that were made for the Frederikshavn Pipe Smoking Championship.


Chess Series

This series is comprised of the Rook, Queen, King and Bishop.
