Of the highest collectability, these pipes are highly sought for their sweet smoke and the prestige of knowing that you are smoking the best!

Alfred Dunhill started his company in 1893 & his first pipe shop opened in 1907 in London. Dunhill uses the finest quality briar in all their pipes which go through over 100 different steps from start to finish. The famous trademark "white dot" on every Dunhill pipe was designed by necessity enabling workers to tell which end of the stem was up. Needless to say, the quality of craftsmanship has come a long way since those days. By the end of the Great War, Dunhill was established as THE smoking pipe of choice, an opinion that thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of pipe smokers adhere to today.
