English Estates: Dunhill Cumberland with Silver (4110) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-32961
On Dunhill's shape chart, the "10" typically refers to a classic Liverpool, and this is that very shape but with a slightly abbreviated overall length. Rendered in Group 4 size, it boasts a good-sized bowl, and what diminution of proportions there are come primarily from the shorter shank and very short Lumberman tapered stem. Speaking of the stem, this one is not the typical cumberland of the series, but brindled vulcanite of mocha and chocolate hues. It pairs well with the ruddy sandblast, while a silver band adds a touch of elegance at the shank end.
When Alfred Dunhill released his patented Shell Briar, he forever changed the pipe-smoking world at large. Dunhill has often been credited with being the first to offer sandblasted pipes (arguably the most popular finish today), and the Cumberland finish further displayed Dunhill's innovative spirit. Well received after its release in 1979, the Cumberland series was named for the English marque's warehouse on Cumberland road, and the line's signature, brindled vulcanite stem became so iconic, the warmly striated material is now referred to simply as "cumberland."-John McElheny
