DUNHILL Nine Drummers Drumming 5103

England, 2001

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true Love sent to me
Twelve lords a-leaping
Eleven ladies dancing
Ten pipers piping
Nine drummers drumming
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six gees a-laying
Five gold rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

First Dunhill Christmas pipe appeared in 1980 and every year Dunhill admirers have an incredible chance to obtain a real piece of pipe carving and design art made with fantastic creativity and aesthetic sensitivity. From 1993 to 2004 the Dunhill Christmas pipes were named following the English tradition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”carol. Each year’s edition represents a line of the song. The 2001 “Nine Drummers drumming”series is even a bit more special among them due to the silver spigot fitting.

The pipe markings are “Nine Drummers \ drumming”, “330 OF 500” on the bowl and “dunhill”, “”, “5103” on the silver collar. The length is 15.1 cm (5.94″), and the bowl’s height is 4.9 cm (1.93″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.8 cm (1.5″), internal diameter is 2.2 cm (0.87″). The depth is 3.9 cm (1.54″) and this pipe weighs 48 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The silver part of the stem has a noticeable seam, but everything sits reliably without any issues. The pipe was accurately smoked and well preserved.
