English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere 'Inner Tube' Patent (A) (173) (1924) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-32901

Lean and svelte, this "05" Dublin from Dunhill, made in 1924, predates the English marque's standardized size designations, fitting into Group 2 in overall length, but with a particularly petite bowl. This piece displays a slight forward cant and a subtle taper. It's paired to a sleek, trim shank-and-stem arrangement, resulting in a lithe, willowy profile. Elegant and demure, this pipe is dressed in the dark, ruby tones of the esteemed Bruyere finish.

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.
