English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar Patent (197) (R) (1949)
Product Number: 004-002-18790
It's not every day we come across a vintage Root Briar Patent and when we do, they certainly don't stick around for long. Not only do these older Dunhills exemplify classic English shaping cues, they are a collector's dream and should appeal to anyone with a soft spot for traditional shapes. Here we see the legendary marque's "197" Billiard, a charmingly classic take on the shape chart standard with the lengthy mouthpiece elegantly tapering toward the lip button. The Root Briar designation is one of the highest honors a Dunhill pipe can receive, as the briar must be free of even the most minor of blemishes. Crafted back in 1949, this piece has held up incredibly well for its age and would elevate any collection of classic shapes.- Jeffery Sitts
