English Estates: Dunhill Eight Ball Dress Pipe Limited Edition (3) (100/100)

Product Number: 004-002-8452

Over it's history, Dunhill has been the source of a myriad of limited edition series. Collections which have run the gamut from exalting to humorous, between the enticingly attractive, to just plain bizarre. This Eight Ball Limited Edition, which is a fine representation of the fun/whimsical side of Dunhill, is part of a series that was referred to as "A Celebration of Gamesmanship".

The total production was limited to a only 200 sets, equally divided between the Shell Briar and the Dress finish, and this Dress version is numbered "100/100". Unwrapping your treasure from a velveteen protective cloth, you will discover a book style presentation box with the production number emblazoned on the spine, along with both the overarching name of the series and the specific focus. Within lies a unique, non-standard shape that mimics the form of an eight-ball and features both a sterling military mount, as well as a cumberland bit that is fashioned to look like a pool cue. On the opposite side of a miniature eight-ball and cue ball (which act as holders), is one of the more inspired tampers that I have seen from the venerable London firm: a miniature take on a billiard rake/bridge, complete with its iconic sterling silver cross. No, this is not a type of common template for a limited edition. Then again, collectors haven't flocked to Dunhill for well over a century, in search of the commonplace, have they?
