Dunhill: Cumberland Quaint Bent Dublin with Silver (2) (2021)
Product Number: 002-015-5316
In addition to offering curious designs not aligned with their chart standards, Dunhill's Quaint series showcases the imagination of the English marque's designers. This particular example is one of their Quaint bent Dublins, featuring a bend that is far more dramatic than their more serialized "14" or "57" designs, and features a lengthy Demi-Churchwarden stem that's sure to allow for comfortable smoking. This stem is paired to a very trim shank, meeting the end at a broad band of silver, contrasting vibrantly with the rest of this Cumberland finished pipe's more warm tones. A subtle forward urge gives the bowl of this Group 2 sized Dublin a touch of dynamism, the compact dimensions lending this piece an incredibly handy weight, and a chamber that is well suited to sitting, sipping smoke, and enjoying a quick smoke.
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."-John McElheny
