English Estates: Dunhill Tanshell (0513) (4) (T) (1976)
Product Number: 004-002-16092
An older Dunhill from 1976, this vintage Tanshell has colored quite nicely over the years, its original blonde shade now a warm, ruby-tinged walnut. This offering from the legendary marque adheres closely to the archetypal form and is presented here in hearty Group 4 proportions. The tall, deep-chambered bowl garners most of the piece's visual attention in relation to the comparatively trimmer, arrow straight shank and stem. The sandblast has brought out a fascinating array of lively grain as the bowl displays a mix of blasted birdseye, cross grain, and even some vertically oriented waves of grain along the right flank. It has only picked up some minor rim darkening over the course of its 43 years of existence and is primed to deliver of a lifetime of pleasurable smokes for its next lucky owner.- Jeffery Sitts
