I recently picked up a pair of Sixten Ivarsson designed Stanwell Hand Made grade pipes and was hoping someone could help me date the pipes.
First is a pipe with the infamous 'potato sack/ nut sack' shape 96 in a sandblast. This pipe is finished a deep mahogany brown and has a HAND MADE IN DENMARK stamp.
The second is a shape 50 horn sandblast. This has a black/purple finish similar to a Dunhill shell. This pipe has a slightly different stamp of HAND MADE over MADE IN DENMARK.
Both pipes are registered era pipes and are close to mint.
Does the difference in stamping give any indication as to relative age our quality (I do know they are at least 50 years old)? I know nothing about stanwell pipes.
Thanks,

Doc

I wish I did, I am working off a phone and this forum is lacking in utility on mobile platforms.

Two great shapes Bob. Just for kicks put them on a scale, those older (late '50's - 1960's) Stanwells are typically very light in weight.

I should also add that the 96 has a hand cut stamp on the stem, although both are clearly hand cut.
