Estate Pipes: English Estate: Dunhill Shell Briar (15) (US Pat) (1931)  

Product Number: 004-002-6532

The year is 1931: Construction of the Empire State Building is completed in New York City; American gangster Al Capone is sentenced to 11 years in prison for tax evasion in Chicago, Illinois; The Persistence of Memory, also known by some as Melting Clocks, the most famous painting by artist Salvador Dali, is completed; and this pipe was born.

No doubt, this is something extra charming about a patent Dunhill pipe. The blasted ones are craggy, yet soft to the touch. Rich colors, excellent vulcanite, and a lot of history is rolled up into this charming offering.
