English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar Patent (LB) (4) (1950)
Product Number: 004-002-18329
What's better than a vintage Dunhill from the 1950s? One with an extra-capacious chamber like this muscular "LB" straight Billiard. It offers a pleasing amount of substance in hand, matched, of course, by the Shell Briar's craggy, stimulating texture. The results speak for themselves, exhibiting an impressive mix of blasted birdseye and dense, undulating rings. This Patent era piece is a rare find, even for veteran Dunhill collectors.- Andrew Wike
