Dunhill: Christmas Pipe 2014 Cumberland (5128) (42/300)
Product Number: 002-015-2360
For 2014 Dunhill continues their "Nutcracker Suite" theme for the limited-edition Christmas Pipe. This year's pipe is somewhat under-appreciated classic, the Diplomat; a shape few marques make with much regularity. Fortunately, Dunhill is one of those few, here offering their "28" Diplomat shape in strapping Group 5 size, and silver-banded to boot. As before, the presentation comes in a leather-bound case designed in the style of a heavy volume of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King
. And of course, as before, the presentation also comes with a special tamper cast in sterling silver.
Last year's tamper represented Clara, also known as Marie, the young daughter of the Stahlbaums and the heroine of the tale, holding her beloved present, the Nutcracker. This time around the silver tamper depicts Fritz, Clara's brother - best known for being a bit of jerk and intentionally breaking the titular Nutcracker, which would later transform into Clara's Prince.
