English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere (722) (4) (A) (1962) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-30420
A unique shape from Dunhill, this "722" design marries the flared rim and gradual taper to the heel of a Dublin with the flattened heel and sure-sitting capabilities of a Poker. Though in Group 4 size, the overall design is quite trim and compact, offering a lightweight presence in hand and plenty of jaw-hanging potential. The petite bowl pairs well to the arrow-straight shank and gently downturned stem of jet-black vulcanite, and it's all dressed in the English marque's stylish, smoky Bruyere finish, showcasing some nice birdseye on either flank of the bowl.
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.--Davin Hylton
