Hello. My name is John Rose. Retired peace officer/CEO. I have smoked and restored estate pipes for 50 years. I like my Peterson and my Stanwell followed closely by a Castello. It depends on my tobacco.
will soon acquire a Stanwell with a gold coloured plaque inscribed "Ringsted Piber". I have never seen this before. The pipe has the Stanwell nomenclature and crowned "S". Can anyone shed light on this Stanwell pipe? I know that the Danish Stanwell was located near Ringsted Demark
Thanks

This may shed some light. This fellow is Headmaster at an art school in Ringsted and acquired some blocks and stems from Stanwell.

I agree with Jensen. It was probably made as a house pipe for some tobacconist in Ringsted. There is a danish facebook page for pipesmokers, and some of the members are very keen on danish pipe lore. The above mentioned BBJ is also a member. It's called piberygerne and they will most certainly help you if you ask.
