English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere with Silver (31031) (1983) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-31905
This Pot from Dunhill is something of a rarity, with a gently scalloped rim that gives the pipe a bit of organic flair not often featured in Dunhill pipes. The shaping is thoroughly traditional, in classic Pot proportions, the shank is a touch longer than the abbreviated bowl. The heel is subdued and curves smoothly to a round shank with a silver military mount, giving the pipe a nice accent with the added benefit of allowing the stem to be removed at any time for easy cleaning thanks to its army mount configuration. Stained in Dunhill's Bruyere finish, the stummel boasts excellent birdseye, making this a fine piece for Dunhill aficionados.
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.-Gabriel Bass
