English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere (3109) (2001) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-19715
Mostly seen in Group 4 and 5 sizes, this "09" Canadian from Dunhill is rendered in Group 3 size, making it uncommon, if not a bit handier. Dressed in the stunning, dark ruby stain of the English marque's Bruyere finish, this elegant piece is sure to intrigue Dunhill collectors. This piece has remained unsmoked since it was created in 2001.
The Bruyere was Alfred Dunhill's original finish upon launching his brand of premium pipes and smoking accessories and was the only Dunhill finish from 1910 until 1917. Even after the addition of other finishes, the Bruyere maintained a high level of popularity, becoming synonymous with what is thought of, even today, as the quintessential pipe. To achieve the iconic, ruby hue and saturation, a skilled craftsman painstakingly layers particular stains in a precise manner, then meticulously polishes the pipe to a high luster. The final result is, simply put, timeless.-Angela Robertson
