Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (4210) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4822
On Dunhill's shape chart, the "10" typically refers to a classic Liverpool but is sometimes used to denote a lithe, lengthy Billiard, like this particular piece. It's highly reminiscent of the long-stemmed pipes associated with legendary crooner Bing Crosby, but features a saddle stem in lieu of a tapered mouthpiece. Rendered in Group 4 proportions, everything is well balanced and handsomely executed, with the hand-cut stem making up the majority of this piece's nearly seven-inch length. Said stem is particularly noteworthy, its creamy coffee hues pairing nicely with the stummel's rustic, earthy stain. This piece was crafted as part of a limited-edition series after The White Spot acquired a handful of vulcanite rods in a number of different, brindled colors. Finished in the light-depth sandblast of the Cumberland series, this piece is tastefully accented by an ornate sterling silver band and a smooth, strongly beveled rim.
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."- Jeffery Sitts
