Dunhill: Chestnut Quaint Bent Dublin (2) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4886
Dunhill's Quaint series showcases designs that don't fit into the English marque's standard shape chart. These more individualized shapes fall within a broad range, though, in how non-traditional they are. For example, this bent Dublin hews closely to Dunhill's "21" Zulu design — a staple shape within their portfolio — yet in this Group 2 piece, the stem is a bit deeper of bend and the transition tighter and less Horn-like. The flare of the bowl is also a touch more dramatic and the heel firmer, lending the bowl a more poised, dynamic disposition. Dressed here in the Chestnut series' dark stain and cumberland stem, it's an excellent piece for those interested in one of Dunhill's smaller offerings and one that's a bit more unique, but still classic overall.
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
