Alfred Dunhill | Chestnut 4106 White Spot Pipe
Alfred Dunhill | Chestnut 4106 White Spot Pipee
To commemorate the closing of the Alfred Dunhill factory in 1983 situated on Cumberland Road, London Alfred Dunhill released a new pipe; they called it a Chestnut.
The Alfred Dunhill Chestnut pipe bears the same characteristics as the Alfred Dunhill Cumberland range (released in 1979). Wanting to keep that close connection with the Cumberland road pipe factory, Dunhill utilised the legendary Cumberland series and gave the same previously sandblasted pipe a smooth, elegant polished finish that enriches the natural grain within the briar. The Chestnut too is paired with the familiar 'Cumberland' vulcanite stem, easily recognised thanks to the white spot, the famous manufacturers signature.
We carefully select all of our Alfred Dunhill briar pipes for their distinct personality. We individually photograph each white spot pipe, rest assured that the pipe you see is the photo is the pipe you will hold.

About Alfred Dunhil...
Alfred Dunhill, famous for supplying briar smoking pipes to the most elite clientele in the world since 1904. Dunhill Pipes made in London are prized collector pieces; they deliver quality, sophistication, and refinement. To Smoke, a Dunhill white spot pipe is to experience a tradition of excellence that is perhaps the greatest in the world of pipes.
In 1915, the famous white spot was introduced as customers had trouble knowing which way to insert the handmade vulcanite mouthpieces. This very practical solution would become a definitive trademark of Dunhill pipes. The “white spot” soon became known as a symbol of quality.
