Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (3407) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5948
This "07" Dunhill Prince belongs to a limited-edition run of pipes that were crafted after The White Spot acquired a handful of vulcanite rods in a number of different, brindled colors. Arguably one of Dunhill's most elegant and recognizable shapes, this Group 3 example features a squat bowl paired to an abbreviated shank and a softly downturned mouthpiece. Accented by a bright band of silver at the shank end, it's topped by a brindled vulcanite stem of intermingling sand and cream hues, quite an eye-catching departure from the marque's other, more traditional cumberland mouthpieces. Wearing the warm sandblast of the iconic Cumberland line, the stem of this piece handsomely compliments the stummel and the bowl showcases blasted birdseye on either flank.
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."-Angela Robertson
