A little bit 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.
