English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (40) (F/T) (4) (S) (1961) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-17845
A modestly sized Group 4 that still boasts plenty of chamber, this Shell Briar Lovat is arguably one of Dunhill's most classic shapes. With an overall length just under five inches, this is one charmingly compact pipe. The Shell Briar sandblast has unveiled a plethora of crisp texture, featuring an excellent mix of blasted birdseye and vertically oriented waves of rippling grain around the bowl. This example was crafted back in 1961 and has incredibly gone all these years without ever being smoked, although I suspect it won't take long to change that. If you're a devoted Dunhill collector or just appreciate a classic shape rendered by one of the best in the business, you'll need to act fast with this piece.- Jeffery Sitts
