Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (3110) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4826
With its lengthy shank-and-stem combination, this beautiful Dunhill "10" Billiard should no doubt prove to be quite an elegant, refined smoker, calling to mind the long-stemmed pieces often seen accompanying Bing Crosby in old photographs. Its trim, elegant proportions make it particularly well-suited to a presentation like the one seen here, as it's dressed in the warm, rustic stain of the legendary marque's Cumberland finish. A bright band of sterling silver provides some brilliant contrast and further accentuates this piece's classy aesthetics. This example is made even more special by the hand-cut, tapered stem, the creamy mocha hues of the brindled vulcanite mouthpiece departing from the usual red and black cumberland Dunhill uses. It's part of a limited-edition line of pipes The White Spot created, showcasing a range of colorful, brindled rods Dunhill acquired.
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
