    1960's Hans Brandt Tobacco Leaf Carved Pipe

    Just a beautiful Danish pipe that was sold by Rob Cooper over the weekend. Carved by Hans Brandt. Three generations of pipemakers, from pipedia,

    Hans Brandt is a quite forgotten pipemaker, who worked in the periphery of the legendary Copenhagen pipe shop Pibe-Dan. Very beautifully made, usually rather delicate freehands. Father of pipemaker Fred Brandt and son of pipemaker Frederik Brandt, who made pipes stamped "FBR" (I believe Frederrik Brandt-Roskilde). Iwan Ries & Company imported Brandt pipes in the 1970s. Fred Brandt is a third generation pipemaker, son of Hans Brandt and grandson of Frederik Brandt. He is also an architect by trade. His pipes are stamped "Fred. Brandt" and at least some are stamped "Hand Cut". One line of pipes appears to be titled "Straightgrain", and is stamped with that word as well.

    Beautiful! I've often wondered why we don't see more ornately carved briars in the manner that's common with meers.

    It is beautiful, but I was not the buyer. I just thought people should see it. Closed at $560.

    I'm starting to grasp this Danish pipe style more and more as I see pipes like this. Looks like an unopened flower bud and bud leaves. Quite beautiful.

    I'm guessing that briar is fairly difficult to carve compared to meerschaum, but it sure is beautiful when someone does it right. An exquisite pipe, Dave! Thanks for sharing that. I had never heard of the Brandt family of pipemakers before.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding! $560 is quite a lot of money but will be worth it for a pipe like that!

    I would completely agree! A very unique piece of work.

    In the use of lines, like Anne Julie, and by a stretch, Custombilt. I also note that the carver does ornate additions to the stem just before the tenon, scroll-shaped or more ornate (lower right in the IR display) that are quite unique. I've never seen this before; what a great place to add a flourish, and this is echoed at the heel. Thank you very much for posting this! But $560.00! Not overly inflated given the pipe, but that's $1120.00 new. I have been looking at Li Zhesong's work on smokingpipes. They are selling two of his pipes, a calabash and a Danish Horn that have everything right, I think. Beautiful grain and exquisitely shaped, especially the horn, for $1000.00, each. Did I have $1000.00. . .did I have $560.00. . .
