Talking about Danish Pipes, you can not underestimate the importance of Stanwell. Early in the 1950s, Poul Nielsen Stanwell started to collaborate with Sixten Ivarsson. Poul Nielsen Stanwell had realized that he had to offer more than traditional (English) shapes if the company was to survive. Therefore, Stanwell introduced several of the new Ivarsson shapes into series production, many of which are still available today. Later, other pipe makers contributed their designs to Stanwell.
Stanwell was the only Danish pipe factory established in the war years which survived the reintroduction of English pipes onto Denmark’s market. Many new Stanwell shapes are created by pipe makers today.
