English Estates: Dunhill Cumberland (32022) (1980) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33103
A bent Billiard of bold proportions and classic style, Dunhill's "02" shape is an archetypal rendition ideal for collectors of standard pipe shapes. The sweeping bend of the shank and stem balances the weight distribution for comfortable clenching and further emphasizes this Group 3 example's muscular bowl. Said bowl is quite different from many of the White Spot's contemporary offerings in this shape, with a a bit of extra squatness and a defined sense of broad muscularity about it. Fashioned in 1980, this "32022" is a handsome, vintage piece, and its dressing in the crisp sandblast of the Cumberland finish keeps things looking rugged and charming.
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."-Truett Smith
