English Estates: Dunhill Ruby Bark (5403) (2007) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-15915
Here in Group 5 size we find an uncommon variant of Dunhill's "03" Billiard, one where it wears a downturned stem. That's the most obvious difference, at least; the stummel's shaping is slightly altered too, having a very light bend at the transition, where the usual "03" is arrow-straight. Oddly enough, Group 5 is very nearly the only size we've ever seen this rare variant appear in, making this quite a find for just about any devoted Dunhill collector. Especially since it's presented here in the warm tones of the Ruby Bark finish and complemented by a bright sterling silver band. The sandblast has brought out a particularly nice display of vertically oriented, rippling grain and blasted birdseye. It's still unsmoked, though the finish along the right side has faded over the years.- Jeffery Sitts
