English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere 'Innertube' Patent with 9K Gold Band (53) (A) (1930)
Product Number: 004-002-17881
A stunning example of Dunhill's classic, vintage shaping style, this "53" bent Billiard would likely fall under their current Group 2 size designation. Fashioned in 1930, it bears an innertube patent number and showcases a sleek, pocket-friendly profile for those who prefer more diminutive classics. It wears a 9K gold band around the shank end, though it should be noted that Dunhill added the accent at the factory to repair a small crack in shank. That said, the metal makes for a fine complement to the Bruyere stain and ensures reliable durability. Like a number of older Dunhill pipes, this one also features wider drilling that would be considered standard but not intended to accommodate a filter.-Truett Smith
