English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere “Inner Tube” Patent (104) (A) (1930) (With Case)
Product Number: 004-002-7353
Amongst the British Isles, the year 1930 saw the first section of the 132kV, 50Hz AC National Grid switched on in Edinburgh, the BBC produce a performance of Luigi Pirandello's short play The Man with the Flower in His Mouth
for use in experimental transmission tests, and the last remaining native inhabitants of the isolated archipelago of St. Kilda evacuated to Lochaline, on the Morvern peninsula (at their request). Also, this Dunhill Patent was made. Aside from the excellent vintage, and the good condition (even the case), this straight Billiard also happens to sport one impressive cross-grain cut.
