Currently '''35 shapes''' classified with 2-digit numbers.  
 
Occasionally a piece of briar is just asking to be carved into a shape which is not in the standard list. The general term for such pipe shapes is “Quaint”. The current system with 4 digits visible has now been in place for over 30 years, and has proven to work very well for Dunhill, the trade, and for consumers.

Although scarcity of fine briar has always necessitated the pricing of Dunhill according to the amount of root employed in their manufacture, it is important to remember that, irrespective of size and price, they are of one quality only – the finest. The bowls are sorted into 6 groups.

<center>[[File:Aspas-copy.png|40px]]'''Today we have up to 6 standard group sizes (depending on the shape) and sometimes, we occasionally also offer a XXL size (for the Billiard and Dublin shapes) and Giant sizes (for the Bent and Billiard shapes), but both the XXL and Giant sizes are manufactured in extremely limited quantities and not in regular intervals and are, therefore, extremely rare. For Collector (Free-hand) and Straight Grain & Amber Flame pipes, we generally distinguish between standard and XL sizes.'''[[File:Aspas.png|40px]] Hener, K.

<blockquote>"The sizing for a given group size will also depend on the shape of a pipe, i.e. the dimensions for a Billiard in group 4 will obviously be different to the dimensions of a Pot or Chimney in the same group size. Also, even within the group size of a particular shape (say a Billiard in group 4) there will always be variations for a multitude of reasons. To name a few:
 +
 +
- the pipes are largely hand-made, so naturally, there will always be slight differences in size;<br>
 +
- we might use different variations of a particular shape (that are all categorised as a Billiard Group 4), i.e. a standard Billiard shape or a more “Barrel” type Billiard shape or a Billiard with a bevel rim or a Billiard with an oval stem… all of which would cause those pipes to differ from each other in terms of their dimensions;<br>
 +
- we work and re-work our pipes tirelessly to eliminate any flaws as much as possible, which will also have certain effects to the dimensions of a pipe;<br>
 +
- sandblasted pipes will be slightly smaller compared to the same pipe in a smooth finish due to the sandblasting process, which - albeit slightly - still reduces the outer dimensions (and the weight) of a pipe.<br>
 +
 +
Above list is not exhaustive, but gives a good idea, why there are no exact measurements for the dimensions of our pipes." Hener, K. S., Product Line Director - The White Spot Smoker's Accessory Division and Walthamstow site (January, 2020).</blockquote>

The encircled group number indicates the size of the bowl (1, for example, is the smaller bowl). It is usually followed by a letter corresponding to the pipe finish. This number/letter code has been introduced about 1952 and was discontinued about 1976 replaced by a 4 or 5 digits code.

A 3-digit system (“Interim”) was developed that showed a logical approach to identify pipes in terms of size, mouthpiece, and shape, with the 1st digit being the size, the 2nd digit the mouthpiece, and the 3rd digit the shape, i.e. the old “85” became a “321” which was a group 3 Apple with taper mouthpiece. This was soon to be replaced by a more detailed, formal 4- and 5-digit system around 1978.

The first image on the right, (with the shape number 577) falls into this system, so 577 has no special meaning apart from describing / being the model for that particular pipe shape (in this case a specific group 2 Billiard with saddle mouthpiece). Around 1973, with the introduction of computers, new categories were introduced that indicated size, mouthpiece, and shape. As for the “T”, in 1952 a full-size “T” was added after the circled group size stamp to further describe the Tanshell finish (in 1953 the “T” was reduced to about half the size). So this pipe dates from 1952.

While e.g. within the Gp.4 Billiard there were 5 different styles of bowls (5th digit being either 1,2,3,4, or 9), for a Gp.1 Billiard there were only 3 styles used (5th digit being 1, 2, or 9).

Although the 5-digit code was stamped on the pipe and thus was visible to the consumer, it was mostly used for internal production planning purposes and to a lesser extent for retail staff. The system proved to be quite complex.

The elimination of the 5th digit on the pipes (probably in the early 80’s) resulted in better management of the pipe stock as there were less skus and it also facilitated the work for the sales staff in the retail shops as the complexity and number of skus was considerably reduced.
