    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

    Made by Stanwell for a tobacconist in Ringsted.

    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.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.
