Founded in 1942 by Poul Nielsen, a Dane with a passion for making pipes. The lack of Briar due to WWII forced him to use Beech for his Danish customers but by 1948 he was sourcing briar and turning his focus to the English market.
His passion was such that the company name changed from Nielsen to Stanwell as he thought this a more English sounding name and around this time he created the Stanwell logo, so easily recognised by pipe smokers world wide.
Today Stanwells are no longer made at the purpose built factory in Baroup near to Copenhagen. Production has moved to Italy whose long history of pipe making has complemented the Danish ability to produce a good reliable hand made pipe at an affordable price.
To this day Stanwell pipes are innovative, unique in design and offer pure smoking pleasure.
