English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (47) (3) (R) (1974) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-31791
A timeless, classic Bulldog design from Dunhill, this vintage piece from 1974 is rendered in Group 3 size and displays the form's characteristic diamond shank and stem, seen here gradually tapering to the bit for a sleek, proportionally balanced silhouette. Handy and streamlined, it's wearing the warm chestnut stain of the Root Briar finish, further cementing its traditional appeal.
The highest honor for a Dunhill pipe is to receive the prestigious Root Briar appellation. Root Briars have been coveted by pipe smokers ever since they first debuted in 1931, due to the fact that each pipe must boast briar completely free of even the most minor of blemishes. Dunhill has the strictest of standards and expectations for quality with all of their pipes, and so any block of briar that comes to bear the Root Briar stamp must indeed be superlative.-Angela Robertson
