English Estates: Dunhill's Shell Briar March Patent (33/10) (1928)
Product Number: 004-002-17320
1928 was a year on the verge of the Great Depression, and it was the last year that Dunhill stamped pipes with the March Patent stamp, which it began in 1915. This piece from 1928 is on the small side, very light, winsomely curved, and showing off the incredibly craggy blast of early Dunhills that is so easily recognizable. The stain has darkened over time and is a pleasing dark brown with highlights of the lighter undercoat. There's some minor rim charring to consider, as well as a bit of chamber carbonizing, but given its age, those issues are merely minor.- Chuck Stanion
