Dunhill Centenary Pipe Shell Briar (ODA) (835 F/T) (219/350) (1993)

Product Number: 004-002-8361

I have never opened a critique shill/pitch with “If this type of collectible is your cup of tea, you will want this”, but never say “never”. Not all that long ago, I saw this pipe offered, unsmoked and with accompanying leaflet, for £1950 – roughly $3300 US. I was taken aback (being polite there) by the asking price, as well as by the sales copy which indicated that this 1993 limited edition was created in honor of Dunhill’s 100th anniversary of being in the pipe business (shakes head “no”). In 1893 Dunhill opened as a recently converted saddlery-turned-driving accessories retailer with the strap line of “Everything but the Motor”, the very first pipe – the Windshield pipe – appeared in 1904. This limited edition was created to celebrate Dunhill’s 100th anniversary as a company, and that’s just dandy.

While smoked (barely, might as well consider the condition as mint), and missing the leaflet, this limited presentation is stamped “219” on the spine of the leather “book” protective case, and “219 of 350” on the pipe’s stamping panel. The pipe itself is a splendid 835 ODA, boasting a combination of fan grain and birdseye which should make any collector proud. The price of this set is $595, which is roughly $200 less than a new, workaday Group 6. Reaching back to my opening line: if this type of presentation is your cup of tea, you will want this.
