English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar Billiard (DR*) (1991)
Product Number: 004-002-6819
When one wants to focus on a collection of Dunhill pipes, especially smooth ones, coming across a DR with stars can be a joy. While the brand notes this reserved stamping is for straight grain pipes, they are all a bit here and there, though this one does have some rather straight (slightly angled) grain on the back-right of the bowl. Compared to a new one ($1,510.00), finding one that is already smoked is a good way to supplement the collection.
