    It is a Prince shape, but with a slightly bent stem.

    I have about 6 in my collection, but haven't been able to find anything on the company.

    Oh, I do not know anything about a Prince of Wales Pipe Company? Could you post some pictures of the pipes, especially the nomenclature?

    It's just a prince.

    From glpease.com.

    If the Apple's bowl is flattened a bit, the shank shortened and thinned, the stem lengthened, and often slightly bent, the Prince, or Prince of Wales shape results. Alleged to have been originally designed in the 1920s by Loewe's in London for Edward Prince of Wales, later Edward VIII, the Prince is sophisticated and graceful, reflecting both Edward's impeccable sense of style and the elegance of the period.

    Thank you Buroak. Just exactly what I was looking for. I have several of the GBD ones. Now I know why they are so good.

    Here's an obscenely expensive Peterson Prince I just bought from a shop in Italy; I've reason to believe it is the the only one available anywhere:

    Peterson uses that shape stummel for churchwardens, but I don't remember seeing one with a short stem before.

    I once did a blogpost about the prince shape (which I must really update because my collection has changed a bit..): The Prince of Pipes

    I know for a fact that if the pipe has a colored lucite or acyrlic stem, it is stamped "Prince of Wales", and "Hand Made" under "Prince of Wales", and across the shank where the stem meets the shank it is stamped, "Italy" it is a Savinelli made pipe.

    Other Prince of Wales were made in Denmark and by GBD. "Italy" is the dead Giveaway for the Savinelli made ones.

    Savenelli makes a prince shape that they call a Prince of Wales, and here's a link to it at smokingpipes.com:

    Speaking of the Prince of Wales we've been power watching The Crown and I noticed The Duke of Windsor clutching a pipe in the episode (S1 E6) we watched last night. He never puffed it and kept it tight in his grasp so I couldn't see if was "his" shape.

    Cool. Yet to watch, but I'll be on the lookout. What is Power Watching? Same as binge but with some righteousness?

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
