Dunhill News 2012 Companion Set

WHITE SPOT CENTENARY
PIPE COMPANION SET

THE WHITE SPOT DOT

When Alfred Dunhill started to manufacture its own pipes in 1910, he laid down that every pipe was to be fitted with a hand-made Vulcanite or Cumberland mouthpiece for each individual bowl. Fitted correctly, those mouthpieces are perfectly aligned to the stem.

From 1912 onwards a small white dot made from ivory was inserted to mark the top of the mouthpiece, thus facilitating for the user the correct re(positioning) of the mouthpiece onto the pipe to customers and staff alike.

In addition to this practical function, the ‘White Spot’ quickly became recognised as a silent, subtle symbol of sophistication, an unostentatious sign that stood for the quality of a dunhill pipe, but also communicated to a third party observer the superior taste of the owner’s choice in product.

Thus, Alfred Dunhill’s White Spot pipe was born and soon registered as the international trademark.

Over the years, the size of the White Spot varied slightly and from the early 1950’s onwards, due to changed legislation, the ivory dot was replaced with white resin material.

Alfred Dunhill’s White Spot pipes continue to be the most recognisable in the world and continue to set the standard in and for the industry.

This Companion Set pipes have been specifically created and manufactured as a limited edition to celebrate the Centenary of the invention and introduction of Alfred Dunhill’s White Spot.

The set consists of:

• Limp Companion Case
• Bruyere Billiard Gr.2 (2103)
• Black Briar Billiard Gr.2 (2103)
• 20 pipe cleaners

The pipes are fitted with 10mm Sterling silver bands with celebratory inscription engraved.

The companion case, made from dark brown Poacher leather contrasted with tan Tradition bridle and white lamb nappa leather and black micro cashmere, is a re-edition of the Limp Companion case featured in Alfred Dunhill’s 1920’s catalogue.

It was manufactured in our London workshop and is only available as part of this set and will be highly collectable.

Being the Centenary, the production is strictly limited to only 100 sets world-wide.

Worldwide launch August / September 2012.
