Dunhill: Cumberland Quaint Belge (3) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5099
Dunhill's Quaint series offers pipes whose shaping falls outside of the marque's standard pipe chart, making for some unique and highly collectible combinations. Presented here is Dunhill's take on the Belge, an age-old pipe shape that dates back to when pipes were originally made out of clay instead of briar. This particular interpretation features the characteristically canted bowl in Group 3 size, fitted to a gracefully arching shank-and-stem combination and giving the piece a Zulu-esque profile. Its traditional appeal is heightened further thanks to the classic, ruddy hues of the Cumberland finish.
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
