The Terracotta Army - Amber Root white Spot pipe has been specially manufactured to remember China's first Emperor and his 'Spirit' Terracotta Army. One of the greatest archaeological revelations of all times, the Terracotta Army is a collection of life-sized Terracotta sculptures buried in a tomb-mound in 210 BC to represent the army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang Di. A group of local farmers discovered this "spirit" army on the 29th March 1974 in Xi'an, Shaanxi, China. The main part of the Terracotta Army is arranged in three giant pits, containing more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots, and 670 horses. It is believed that each soldier's face is unique. This Pipe, a classic Bent in a group 5 (5102) Amber Root finish, is fitted with an intricately engraved Sterling silver band. The Sterling silver tamper represents one of the Emperor's Generals while the leather book/display box shows in relief an army scene on its cover.

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.
