In addition to being a Comoy's second, or sub-brand, Kingsway is also a Stanwell brand or sub-brand. And there maybe other makers.

The following example has crowned K for a stem logo.

And here we have an example that actually shows a faint Stanwell stamp on one side, and Selected Briar on the other. The stamps were sanded down and it was restained and stamped Kingsway. But you can still see the Stanwell markings if you look closely. This is proof that Stanwell at least made some of them.

If you any additional information about the Danish made Kingsway pipes, please add it here, or send it to sethile.pipes@gmail.com and we can add it for you.
