English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar with Bamboo (41022) (1984) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-32730
Dunhill's ever-elegant "02" bent Billiard has been around since the 1930s, its longevity a testament to the form's multi-generational appeal. Fashioned in 1984, this particular Group 4-sized rendition is especially alluring, as it boasts a shank extension of bamboo and is finished in the warm, golden hues of the Root Briar finish. The coveted Root Briar finish highlights a vivid display of birdseye and cross grain about the bowl, and its rich color harmonizes beautifully with the bamboo's natural tones. Truly eye-catching, this piece is a visually alluring and precisely shaped bit of English craftsmanship, one that should be on any Dunhill collector's radar.
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.--Davin Hylton
