Alfred Dunhill White Spot | Ruby Bark Briar Pipe | 4106 (002)
 

Originally introduced in 1972 as the new Alfred Dunhill Sandblast, the now know Rubybark briar pipe, took on the name Redbark. Following events in the 1960s in Algeria, Italy decided that they would keep all precious wood (including Algerian briar) for national manufacturers only. Dunhill then had to source their briar from elsewhere, mainly Greece, which meant they then had to adapt their technique as the briar dictated, resulting in a change to the finished pipes. Using this newly required briar, Dunhill produced the Rubybark pipe using a medium red stain to produce its individual finish. Two years after its initial production the stain of the Redbark was lightened but proved to be unsuccessful and production was ceased. In 1987 the Redbark was re-born as the Alfred Dunhill Rubybark White Spot Briar pipe, the pipe we now all know and love, and comes as standard with a beautiful 6mm sterling silver band, giving the perfect balance of class and sophistication, its name and finish reflective of the precious ruby stone.

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 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.
