    Stanwell 50

    I had recently been looking for a Stanwell shape 06, a shape designed by Sixten Ivarsson. The first two pictures below show one that sold recently. I had seen this one, another on ebay, and one at smokingpipes.com. Then last week I saw the pipe in the next three pictures, Stanwell shape 50. Now, in the Stanwell shape list compiled by Basil Stephens, and referred to in another post, lists shape 50 as "Billiard, large size, oval stem and mouthpiece", well this pipe is clearly not a billiard. In profile, the shape 06 and the shape 50 are similar bent Dublin shapes. Only in the last two pictures can one see that the shape 50 has a lot more going on, the oval shape of the bowl, and the oval on end shape of the shank (this detail was not apparent until I had the pipe in hand). This shape 50 is shown in the late 1950's catalog on Lars Kiel's site, and I'm fairly confident is an Ivarsson designed shape. A more complex, and I'm sure a more difficult shape to make than the 06.

    The late 1950's catalog,

    Now, you see, a Scot like Ally might just have assumed that you meant a small Stanwell.

    I have ucked fup with topic titles before, a PM to one or more of the mods has sorted it.

    Looks like an Ivarsson shape to me, all right!

    "Stanwee" would be a good name for a smal Stanwell pipe, btw....
    With kind regards, Bo

    Very cool,
    you're building up a good collection of early Stannies.

    Stanwell was my first love and I still have a soft spot for them.

    Many of the early shape numbers were "overwritten" with newer shapes, kind of odd, and that's why I was confused about your 11, what you got is the earliest variant of the shape, much more rare than the later shape...

    ...have you ever seen this German fanpage?
    It's really great, they have a katalog section with most of them all (be sure to check out the asian market catalog!), also another great feature is when you scroll down to the bottom they have a comprehensive image database on all the shapes and each variation, well worth a look, although on my browser I always get a wonky pop up for some game or something that I have to double-close to get to go away, regardless, it's a valuable archive for the Stanwell enthusiast!

    Yes, I've seen that site, and used the information there. Your shape 11 is the earlier pipe by Sixten Ivarsson, no?

    Your shape 11 is the earlier pipe by Sixten Ivarsson, no?

    That's not my pipe, I just used the image for illustrative purposes,
    but no, that pipe is the later version, the most well-loved Stanwell
    shape in Germany, it's very hard to find one that's non-9mm...

    ...yours is the earlier one, probably 50's or early 60's,
    an amazing find I'd say, it's quite the unique shape,
    and to my eye it has the Sixten touch,
    so I agree that it's an Ivarsson design.
