A trip to London is never complete unless you make a pit stop at Harrods to stock up on some good old Alfred Dunhill stuff. Alfred Dunhill himself was a British tobacconist and founder of Alfred Dunhill Ltd. a London-based luxury goods company that today happens to be owned by the Richemont Group —yes, the same group that owns Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Söhne and Montblanc amongst other brands. What started as a small shop selling motoring accessories quickly became a tobacco shop that today is known as the tobacco Dunhill brand —now owned by British American Tobacco— and then years later progressed into a clothing store that evolved into one of the most important luxury goods brands in the world.
This black textured-leather cardholder is a testament to Dunhill's long-serving expert craftsmanship, which dates back to 1893. Handmade to resemble an small leather envelope, it features silver embossed lettering that nods to the label's London flagship address in a beautiful cursive handwritten style.
The combination between the black leather, the silver handwritten style address and the gold stamping that resembles a postmark makes this business card holder the perfect object of desire for those looking to be ahead of the crowd. The Dunhill Boston Envelope card holder can hold a stack of approximately eight nice and thick business cards. A perfect souvenir we brought from our recent trip to London attending the launch of the Vacheron Constantin Fifty Six Tourbillon we have pictured here.
