Dunhill Shell Briar (Eight Maids a-milking) (5122) (4/500) (2000) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-002-6538

The Dunhill Christmas Pipe is a special series in and of itself, featuring limited-number annual runs of beautiful Dunhill briars accompanied by special book-style presentation cases and specifically designed tampers cast in sterling silver. That having been said, the Christmas Pipes that were issued from 1993-2004 have a particularly special place amongst collectors, as these were 12 the years during which Dunhill followed the theme of what is perhaps the most famous Christmas carol of all, and an English one at that: The Twelve Days of Christmas.

For 2000 the shape was the solid, straightforward “22” Poker (here in classic Shell Briar finish) of Group 5 scale, bearing a broad sterling silver band etched with the verse, “Eight Maids-a-milking”. The silver tamper’s design features a main body of buckets stacked to resemble a Christmas tree, encircled by the edition’s namesake Eight Maids.

This example also happens to be number “4/500” produced, a special number to collectors where Dunhill’s limited editions are concerned, given that “1/x” remains in the hands of Dunhill. I don’t know where that leaves "2/x" or “3/x”, but I can say that I’ve never seen a single one yet.
