Alfred Dunhill White Spot In 1915, the famous white spot was introduced because many people had trouble knowing which way to insert the handmade vulcanite mouthpieces. So Alfred Dunhill ordered white spots to be placed on the upper side of the stem. This was a good and practical solution to the problem. This would later become a destined trademark for the Dunhill pipes. The “white spot” later became known as a symbol of quality.
