English Estates: Dunhill Ruby Bark (5103) (2007) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-19812
Rendered in Group 5 size, this robust "03" straight Billiard from Dunhill features a tall bowl with plenty of chamber capacity and a flash of dazzling silver at the shank-end. Dressed in the Ruby Bark finish, it wears a crimson sandblast that exposes stacks of grain that radiate from the heel up toward the smooth, beveled rim. Handsomely fashioned and classically inclined, this unsmoked pipe also boasts plenty of textural intrigue.
Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was re-imagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish.-Angela Robertson
