English Estates: Dunhill County (5111F) (2021) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-34606
In Group 5 size, Dunhill's "11" Lovat shape can sometimes take on some subtle, seemingly Italian proportions. The bold bowl up front offers no shortage of chamber, the relative size between shank and bowl emphasized more so than, say, Group 2 or 3 renditions. This rendition, however, maintains a consistent sense of muscularity through the bowl and shank for a heartily balanced disposition. Arrow straight out back, the elongated shank and abbreviated stem characterize the iconic form, and this example is found here in the County sandblast with 9mm drilling to appeal to smokers who appreciate filtered pipes.
Like the Cumberland finish, Dunhill's County line pairs rich, cumberland stems with delightfully textured sandblasts. Typically, County pieces wear a lighter stain, often falling between the Cumberland and Tanshell hues, and since its introduction in 1986, with only a brief hiatus, the County remains stalwart within Dunhill's portfolio, especially desired by lovers of brindled vulcanite and warm sandblasts.-Truett Smith
