Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (3903) (2020) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7136

It's immediately curious when the proportions of a Group 3 Dunhill give it the impression of boasting ODA size. That impression, though, is only the result of this "03" Billiard's extra-short shank and saddle stem combination. While measuring well under four inches in length, this Nosewarmer features a chamber of standard depth and a bowl that's almost as tall as the shank and stem are long. Such dramatic proportions are a departure from Dunhill's typically highly traditional shaping, but that's to be expected when prioritizing pocket-friendly size and a lightweight form. Dressed in the deep sandblast and paired with the eponymous stem of the Cumberland series, this pipe is additionally accented with a trim band of silver at the junction.

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."
