English Estates: Dunhill Tanshell (60) (4) (T) (1961) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-32080

This archetypal Billiard from Dunhill perfectly embodies English style. A pert bowl paired to a balanced round shank, soft heel, and vulcanite tapered stem make this pipe lightweight and balanced, perfect to accompany a pleasant walk. Dating from 1961, a Dunhill of this vintage will be sure to interest collectors. The pipe is dressed in the English marque's Tanshell sandblast, creating a rugged texture and rich red hue thanks to its deep patina.

Created in 1951, the Tanshell marked Dunhill's fourth finish behind the Bruyere (1910), Shell Briar (1917), and Root Briar (1931); however, Dunhill didn't complete the "Tanshell" stamp until December 1951, waiting until 1952 to actually introduce the first Tanshell pipes. Considered one of the English marque's rarest, most collectible finishes, the Tanshell boasts a concise sandblast but unlike the dark-stained Shell Briar, the Tanshell is naturally stained, intended to develop a warm patina.
