Stanwell Masterpiece by Tom Eltang

April 5, 2008

This is a lovely pipe. Once again, a present from my adorable wife. The pipe is flawless in every way, which is what makes it a masterpiece, styled and hand cut by one of Denmarks finest pipe makers, Mr. Tom Eltang.

The pipe comes in a wooden presentation box complete with certificate of authenticity and cotton gloves and a leather pouch for transportation. The pipe is coloured and sealed with twelve coats of laquer giving a brilliant finish to the polished bowl. Perfectly proportioned, well balanced and finished with a yellow metal ring and Stanwell logo, it is a pleasure to behold.

Not the largest of pipes, it measures 15 cm in length, has a bowl depth of 37 mm and internal bowl diameter of 19 mm. Outer bowl dimensions; height 43 mm and diameter of 33 mm at its widest point.

I am so proud of this pipe that I keep it in its presentation box and it only comes out when people who really appreciate a nice pipe come to visit. As of yet, it has never left the comfort and security of my living room!

    Indeed, one magnificent pipe. And Mr. Eltang launched my pipe collecting. Also while he was at Stanwell. They,S, offered a panel Billiard in two of their different lines: Designer Collection & Diplomat(I believe). Both the exact same lines. My 1st pipe came to me by way of The Grandson of E. Silber of Cellini Original fame in Chgo while I was at school. A Billiard. Saw the Eltang pipe on eBay, bid & lost. So entranced with the style, I emailed the seller who went into his inventory to find the last one he had. Bought it, then 2 mos later the same style pipe came up under the other designation. Bought it. 1 & 1/2 years later, more pipes than I can smoke in a year, & still finding lines & makers I never knew existed. Even have a briar that looks as if Geo. Washington himself puffed on this one. Keep this activity going. I learned something this evening: Treating Vulcanite. THANKS.

    And Thankyou Joe. Nice to know that one is providing a little useful advice. Sounds like you have quite a collection. I’d love to see the “George Washington”..!!
