I took a chance on an estate pipe listed on a UK cigar suppliers website when it arrived it was new old stock unsmoked. This will be my first new pipe.

See Stanwell shape 91, "Freehand, large flat bowl, saddle mouthpiece, “Ukulele” by Sixten Ivarsson." A famous Ivarsson shape.

You have excellent taste in a new pipe. I hadn't seen this shape before, though I have a Sixten Ivarsson designed Stanwell pot, which is a pretty standard item and has continued to be a favorite in various series from the economical brushed black and brown to the up-market series. Like Melvin Glazer, the NYC designer who reached out to mass market products, Sixten favored many smokers of modest means with his work.

That's a pretty cool pipe. It must have been a thrill to realize that it was un-smoked! The internet says it's a "Stanwell Danish Sovereign 392". It does look a lot like the above-mentioned "91" shape. :puffy:

Yes, shape 92 "same as shape 91 but smaller by Sixten Ivarsson."

Yes this is a 392, I was thrilled to find it unused. It isn't anymore.

Oops. The designer I mentioned in my post above is Milton Glazer, not Melvin. There is a documentary on him that is a short course in graphic and commercial design. He said when he was a young artist, he couldn't see himself spending a career doing work to hang in frames on peoples' walls.
