The 2010 Christmas pipe finalises the 5-year theme
based on the main characters of the famous book ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles
Dickens, which we initiated in 2006.
This being the 5th pipe in the series, it depicts
another of the main characters of the story, THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS
This year’s pipe is a very elegant group 4 Bulldog in
County finish with slightly forward leaning bowl and tapered stem. It features a
square Sterling Silver Spigot mount inscribed “The Ghost of Christmas Future”
giving the pipe an exceedingly contemporary appearance. The solid Ghost of
Christmas Future Pipe tamper is hand-crafted from approximately 35 grams of
finest English Sterling Silver.
The highly collectable Dunhill Christmas pipes and
tampers are presented in a leather-bound book held in typical red & green
Christmas colours with golden embossing in co-ordination with the previous books
of this series and each set is accompanied by its numbered limited edition
This edition series is strictly limited to annually
only 300 pipes worldwide. Markets will be allocated the same quantities and
edition numbers as put down last year to facilitate collection of sets.

and well-known Christmas story by Charles Dickens.
Bulldog shape Elegant execution of
our most popular British shape with forward leaning head and tapered stem.
County finish Light-brown
sandblasted finish with smoother surface compared to standard sandblasted pipes
- Alfred Dunhill invented the sandblasted pipe in 1917 - Sandblasting the pipe
substantially enlarges its surface; thus, the pipe becomes lighter and smokes
cooler than a smooth pipe
Cumberland mouthpiece Traditional
taper mouthpiece individually cut, shaped, finished and fitted from marbled,
rough rod Cumberland.
