Dunhill: Chestnut Quaint Belge (2) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6918
Dunhill's Quaint series offers up 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 Presented here is Dunhill's take on the Belge, an age-old pipe shape that dates back to when pipes were originally made out of clay instead of briar.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 2 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, warm hues of the Chestnut finish.
A sibling to the Cumberland, Dunhill's Chestnut finish was inaugurated in 1983 to commemorate the closing of the Cumberland Rd. warehouse for which the Cumberland finish was named. Like the Cumberland, pipes in the Chestnut line wear the same dark, smoky stain and are fitted to stems of cumberland but feature a silky smooth, glossy finish compared to the Cumberland's rugged sandblast.-John McElheny
