The Alphorn (German: Alpenhorn) is literally translated as "Horn of the Alps"
 
These traditional long horns ere played by Alpine herdsmen and villagers, originallu sounded for intercommunication and at daily ceremonies and seasonal festivals. Today, these imposing horns are mostly played as musical instruments.
 
The Alphorn is carved or bored from wood and overwound in birch bark. Most instruments are straight, reaching ip to 12 feet (4 metres) in length; since the mid 19th century, especially in Switzerland, the bell may be upcurved.
 
This White Spot Pipe has been inspired by the shape of the traditional Alphorns of the European Alps.
 
Your Alphorn pipe has been individually hand-turned, is stamped as a Collector XL in Tanshell finish and measures approximately 34 cm (13,5 inches) in length.
 
Fitted in a ventilated Ventage pipe case (which was invented by Alfred Dunhill in 1919 and patented in 1920), the certificate confirms this pipe to be one of a limited, assorted production run of onl 34 units world-wide.

About Alfred Dunhill...

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.
