English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar with Silver Army Mount (3103) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-31440

In Group 3 size, Dunhill's "03" straight Billiard is perhaps at its most quintessential, perfectly personifying the classic form and representing the archetype to which many other makers look for inspiration and shaping standards. A sterling silver army mount adorns the shank end, allowing this pipe to be taken apart easily for easier storage or a deep cleaning when the time arises. It also provides some brilliant contrast against the dark stain of the Shell Briar sandblast and further accentuates this piece's traditional appeal. Unsmoked.

The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe-smoking history. Before 1917, pipes with sandblasted finishes had never been made, and Alfred Dunhill's innovative mind created arguably the most popular finish for pipes today when he unveiled the Shell Briar. With its dark, reserved color palette and delightful texture, it's no surprise that it's still wildly popular over a century later.
