English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar Quaint (5) (2007)
Product Number: 004-002-8128
Dunhill's tradition of very classic shapes sometimes takes a detour. A craftsman is working on, say...a classic Group "5" bent, and a flaw is found. Chuck the whole piece? No way! Now there is an opportunity to explore, in a semi freehand manner, what shape the briar has to offer. The result is a Quaint. This Quaint has a rather novel shape (see above); the overall piece, to my mind, has a hint of Italian flair, and that extra long stem is the perfect finishing touch. I know a fair amount of collectors that have a passion for Dunhill Quaints. This, gents, is a very nice one!
