Dunhill: Chestnut Calabash with Silver (5) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4856
The Calabash isn't a shape typically associated with English pipe making, making this piece one of Dunhill's less often seen designs. With a highly distinguished S-curve, the entire piece gradually flares from bit to rim, terminating in a sleek Dublin bowl, forgoing the traditional, mushroom-cap Calabash aesthetic. The only interruption to the smooth-lined profile is the briar accent ring at the shank, finished in a smooth, walnut stain to contrast the stummel's dark, Bruyere hue, leading the eye toward the broad band of sterling silver.
A sibling to the Cumberland, Dunhill's Chestnut finish was inaugurated in 1983 to commemorate the closing of the Cumberland Rd. warehouse for which the Cumberland finish was named. Like the Cumberland, pipes in the Chestnut line wear the same dark, smoky stain and are fitted to stems of cumberland but feature a silky smooth, glossy finish compared to the Cumberland's rugged sandblast.-Truett Smith
