Denmark, 1960s

Who knows how would look modern smoking pipes without the incomparable influence of the “Danish miracle” and many efforts performed by Danish artisans and resellers such as Pipe-Dan. P. Holtorp was one of young talents working for Pipe-Dan in 1960s among with Sven Knudsen, Gert Holbek, Axel Svend Celius, Tom Eltang. “…the majority of his pipes was a bit different from the Danish “fancy freehands” and more striving for elegance. The typical Holtorp features bold lines and forms. Some are very manly pipes, so to say, rather made for stronger built pipesters”. (c) Pipedia. And we are proud to offer today this extraordinary Danish freehand from 1960s!
