Denmark, 1970s

The pipe can be dated quite precisely. Hans Sørensen founded the Danmore company in the early 1970s and it was quite a lucky start up, Danmore pipes were popular and sold in the Pipe Dan catalogue as well. But due to raising labour costs and falling demand the pipes production was closed in the early 1980s. Today the Danmore Hobby Aps company is known only as pipe cleaners maker.

Nice, Danish indeed sample of the 1970s pipe making art! The pipe markings are “3031”, “danmore \ HANDMADE IN DENMARK”. The length is 15.5 cm (6.1″), bowl’s height is 4.5 cm (1.77″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.9 cm (1.54″), internal diameter is 1.9 cm (0.75″). The depth is 3.7 cm (1.46″) and this pipe weights 43 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
