Dunhill: Cumberland Quaint Bent Billiard Sitter (4) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6601
This bent Billiard is a member of Dunhill's Quaint series, which focuses on Freehand-shaped pipes that stray from English firm's traditional shape chart. However, this bent Billiard closely resembles Dunhill's "02," with one defining difference, the underside has been flattened. This stylistic choice alters the sinuous profile, adding some rigid definition, and makes this pipe a stable Sitter. Rendered in Group 4 size, the bowl feels robust in hand, and the shank-and-stem arrangement possesses an elongated, willowy profile. Dressed in the Cumberland finish, this pipe wears the series' rugged sandblast and eponymous stem quite well.
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."--Zach Podl
