Sasieni was not so fortunate in the U. S., where by the early 1920’s Sasieni had found an enthusiastic audience. In an initial attempt to comply with U. S. patent law, Sasieni moved the one blue dot to the side of the pipe. This unfortunately didn’t do the trick, and only a few side dot Sasieni’s were ever made, which are now extremely rare and collectible.

So, thanks in part to Dunhill’s patent attorneys, one of the most famous logos in the pipe industry was born. To clearly differentiate his pipes from Dunhill’s, and also to distinguish the American market pipes from all others (American market pipes originally only had a three month guarantee, although by the mid 1930’s this was extended to one year) Sasieni put four blue dots on the stem of his pipes, arranged in the shape of an elongated diamond.

Sasieni n'eut pas tant de chance aux USA, , dès les années 20 il avait trouvé un public enthousiaste. Dans une première tentative pour se mettre en règle avec les lois américaines sur les brevets, Sasieni déplaça le point bleu sur le côté de la pipe. Ceci malheureusement ne suffit pas, et seules quelques Sasieni avec le point sur le côté furent fabriquées, ce qui en fait aujourd'hui des pièces de collection extrêmement rares.
    
The distinctive logo was an immediate hit in the U. S., where it, along with the pipes’ exceptional smoking qualities, helped the pipe to sell in such quantities the factory had trouble keeping up with the demand. In fact, by the 1930’s over 90% of Sasieni’s production was going to American shores.
