Exclusively third party made pipes. Shape numbers running from 1 through 30 (but not only in this period) and probably, DUNHILL over DUKE ST. S.W stamps. Stamping in these years is presently unknown, but it should be something like that:

1910-1917 (Pre-1918 - Smooth Only)


First own partial production introduced in 1910, but still using bowls shaped in France. In 1917 the Calabrian briar started to be used, but not completely. Only in 1920, Dunhill took the final step in its pipe making operation.
