English Estates: Dunhill Tanshell Patent (63 F/T) (1) (T) (1952)

Product Number: 004-002-8546

The year is 1952. Elizabeth II becomes Queen upon the death of her father George VI; Ann Davison becomes the first woman to single-handedly sail the Atlantic Ocean; Remains of a Viking ship are found near Boston, Massachusetts; and this pipe was born. Earlier examples of the Tanshell finish pretty much don't exist, as they were first produced in 1951/52 (meaning they may have been made in late '51 but reached market in '52). Some markets rejected this non-uniform texture in such a craggy blast, but scads of collectors then, and today, are drawn to this for that very reason.
