King Erik pipes were advertised as "Hand Made by Danish Craftsmen" and as made in Denmark. Primarily offered in a two tone combination smooth and sandblasted finish, the pipes were marked with a KE on the stem. While the maker is unknown, it seems likely that these pipes were sold to the American market as intended competition for the popular pipes made by Erik Nørding, Karl Erik Ottendahl and others, especially given that the pipes are Danish, and the "King Erik" for which the pipes are named would seem to be Swedish, namely Erik Jedvardsson, King Eric IX of Sweden.
