Not surprisingly, the idea of their former employee competing with them using a very similar trademark didn’t exactly make Dunhill’s day. Over the years, there has been a great deal of speculation about the “European One Dot”.The belief persists that Sasieni continued to produce the One Dot well into the Sixties.The word “Claret” on the shank is also a bit of a tip off.The distinctive new logo was an immediate hit in the U.While this may raise a few eyebrows, I believe it will become clear these classifications are actually quite appropriate.Therefore, it will also become clear a collector must be able to distinguish between Sasieni’s of different eras, as it is mainly the family made pieces made between 19 which are truly desirable to collectors.
About this time the company started stamping “Four Dot” on the shanks of the pipes, to further capitalize on the now famous trademark’s prestige.I know I haven’t, nor has any of the knowledgeable collectors of my acquaintance.My personal theory is that some people were confused by the “Claret”, which was a second produced in the Sixties that did indeed have one blue dot on the stem (by this time one supposes Dunhill had simply stopped caring what Sasieni did), but these pipes were clearly seconds, and are instantly recognizable by a dark bruyere stain and a turquoise ferule.The Sasieni Eight Dot is now the most collectible of all Sasieni pipes, due to both its scarcity and the fact that, unlike other Sasieni’s, the collector can be reasonably certain when the pipe was made. Like the Four Dot, the Eight Dot had its logo made by individually inserting rods of blue plastic into pre-drilled holes in the stem, similar to the process used by Dunhill for their one white spot.The Eight Dot made its debut in the late 1920’s or very early 1930’s, and was discontinued during W. This was an excruciatingly difficult procedure, even on the Four Dot, for each dot had to be placed just right in order to create the desired diamond shape, and on the Eight Dot, both sets had to be symmetrical.
