English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere Christmas Pipe (Three French Hens) (4202) (4/500) (1995) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-002-6540

The Dunhill Christmas Pipe is a special series in and of itself, featuring limited-number annual runs of beautiful Dunhill briars accompanied by special book-style presentation cases and specifically designed tampers cast in sterling silver. That having been said, the Christmas Pipes that were issued from 1993-2004 have a particularly special place amongst collectors, as these were 12 the years during which Dunhill followed the theme of what is perhaps the most famous Christmas carol of all, and an English one at that: The Twelve Days of Christmas.

1995 saw the issuing of the "Three French Hens", represented by a classic bent Billiard with saddle stem and sterling silver wind-cap, as well of course as the edition's special "Three French Hens" silver band. The sterling silver tamper depicts the namesake hens, gathered about three bannered lances.

This example also happens to be number "4/500" produced, a special number to collectors where Dunhill's limited editions are concerned, given that "1/x" remains in the hands of Dunhill. I don't know where that leaves "2/x" or "3/x", but I can say that I've never seen a single one yet.
