Dunhill: Cumberland Quaint Acorn (2) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-5094
The Acorn isn't a non-traditional design; a number of vintage French and English makers have produced the design. However, Dunhill doesn't designate a shape number for it on the systematized shape chart, thus such renditions are found in the English marque's Quaint series. Of all the versions I've seen, this Group 2 is the most reserved and quintessentially "classic" — the bowl marked by an obvious yet simple Acorn shape, and the shank and stem remaining sleek and streamlined for a perfectly balanced, soft-lined aesthetic.
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."-Truett Smith
