Alfred Dunhill | Shell 3103 (The Dalmatian Dog) Limited Edition White Spot Pipe
 
This White Spot pipe has been specially manufactured to honor the Dalmatian dog, known for its spotted fur.
 
This pipe, a Billiard in group 3, is fitted with an Army mount made from rare, speckled Erinoid material.
 
Each pipe is further accompanied by a Dalmatian pipe tamper exquisitely crafted from solid Sterling Sliver.
 
The special stamping confirms your pipe to be Number 75 in the Shell Briar finish of only 81 units world-wide.
 
The Dalmatian (also known as Carriage Dog, Spotted Coach Dog or Firehorse Dog) was originally used to run under or alongside horse-drawn carriages.  First illustrations of this beautiful dog have been found in Croatia dating to the early 1600's, confirming its Dalmatian origin.
 
During the Regency period, the Dalmatian became a status symbol trotting alongside the horse-drawn carriages and these with decorative spotting were highly prized and sought after by the nobility.
 
The breed became better known after the 1956 book The Hundred and One Dalmatians by the British author Dodie Smith, which was followed by the popular Walt Disney movies.
 
We individually photograph each white spot pipe, be assured that the pipe you see is the photos is the pipe you will hold in your hand.
