English Estates: Dunhill Amber Root (4108) (2004) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-19436
A stunning offering from Dunhill, this "08" bent Bulldog is a wonderful example of classic shaping from the English marque. The Group 4-sized bowl's design is rather robust, with its encircling twin beadlines right at the domed rim, while the broad flanks narrow to the uplifted heel, resulting in a dynamic, forward cant. A pinched transition gives way to the form's crisply lined diamond shank, then topped by a wide, downturned mouthpiece, the combination seeming a bit rakish in disposition. This pipe is handsomely grained, with fine tendrils of flame grain gracing the left flank and is dressed in the Amber Root finish.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Angela Robertson
