English Estates: Dunhill Dress (3406) (2009) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-19417
The Dunhill Pot is normally rendered in a straight-stemmed configuration, with this down-turned, Prince-style iteration being a rarer sighting. Wearing the elegant Dress finish and rendered in Group 3 size, this piece is worthy of consideration for collectors and Dunhill fans.
One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 and is meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom. Unsmoked.-Angela Robertson
