By Jeannette Rice Caskey Orginally published March Glass of a late vintage is often thought to be much earlier than it really is. It is not uncommon to hear someone say a certain piece is well over a hundred years old, because it belonged to their grandmother. They reason that if their grandmother were still alive she would be well over a hundred and therefore her glass is too.
They do not stop to think that it is much more probable that the piece of glass was bought the day she died rather than the day she was born? To ascertain the correct age of an old piece, the judgment of a student of glass should be relied upon, in preference to family tradition. There are many factors to aid in determining its age, such as the constituents used in glass production during certain periods.

A Dunhill Pipe Dating Guide Alfred Dunhill began to manufacture briar smoking pipes in ; the famous white spot first appeared on top of the hand-cut vulcanite mouthpiece in in order that the customer should know which part faced upwards. At about this same time a one year guarantee against defects was offered on the bowl of each pipe, and to insure against far older Dunhill pipes being replaced under this guarantee a simple dating code, showing the year of manufacture, was devised and stamped onto each pipe bowl.
This code is still in use today. Over the ensuing years great interest has arisen over the “mystique” of the Dunhill pipe in general and the dating code in particular. Pipe collectors, especially in America, pride themselves on having acquired Dunhill pipes in prime condition which were made in the ‘s, ‘s and ‘s. Some collectors strive to acquire only those Dunhill pipes made between when Dunhill stopped buying bowls turned in France in favor of those turned in London at the newly opened Dunhill bowl-turning facility and the year of Alfred Dunhill’s retirement.
Consequently, much confusion has arisen over the dating code because it has not been standardized over the years, and seemingly minor differences in the code can mean a difference of years, even decades, in the manufacture of the pipe. Adding to this is the fact that the firm has used a great many special stampings depending on what part of the world to which their pipes were destined, and that sometimes these stampings or codes were used for only three or four months duration.
Leading to even greater confusion is that many pipes were simply stamped incorrectly; at times one part or another of the code is not to be found on a given pipe. Taking all this into account it should not be surprising that the original and complete dating code list, in possession of the firm’s archivist at 30 Duke Street, is some twenty eight pages long.
And even if this list was made available it would be of little use to any but the most expert because it can only be used in conjunction with the most precise knowledge of the Dunhill pipe as it has changed in appearance over the years. But enough of the complications in dating Dunhill pipes.
