English Estates: Dunhill Cumberland (51091) (1983) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33161
Dunhill's "09" Canadian is an inherently austere shape. The combination of an elongated, oval shank and a upright Billiard bowl create the bold, firm-lined profile that's made the design a staple among classic shape charts. The shape's tapered stem does well to keep the lines of the profile intact and consistent, uninterrupted through the silhouette. This particular Group 5 rendition from 1983 is especially choice, beautifully dressed in the crisp sandblast of the Cumberland finish, showcasing quavering growth rings across the fore and aft, blasted birdseye on the flanks, and a tapered stem of the finish's iconic, eponymous material.
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
