Dunhill Christmas Pipe (Ten Pipers Piping) (5101) (4/500) (2002) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-002-6548

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.

The 2002 edition brought us this stout straight Apple in generous Group 5 size, bearing the edition’s signature silver band, and a matching ring about the rim. The namesake “Tem Pipers piping” are depicted playing in a circle upon the sterling silver tamper.

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.
