The Shell Briar's dark double sandblast is one of my favorite Dunhill finishes. It feels natural in hand and brings out plenty of interesting grain - in this case layer after layer of ring grain. Sporting it well, this group 5 bent Pot looks quite dashing all dressed in black. The shaping is classic Dunhill with a pronounced heel, muscular shank, and deep bend at the transition. Due to a flattened spot just below the base, it sits like a charm as well. A great addition to any collection.
