English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (253) (F/T) (4) (S) (1966)
Product Number: 004-002-19910
Wearing a low-depth version of Dunhill's Shell Briar sandblast, this Group 4 "253" strikes the quintessential profile of a straight Billiard: tall bowl, rigid heel, and arrow straight shank and stem, with this one's shank-and-stem combination tapering ever-so-slightly from transition to lip button, which draws focus to the bowl. Fashioned in 1966, this is an excellent, vintage piece from the revered English marque — primed for a place in a collection of antique classics.-Truett Smith
