English Estates: Dunhill Amber Root (2107) (1999) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-32815
Dated to 1999, this "07" Apple from Dunhill showcases the elegant shaping and precise line work for which the English marque is known. This Group 2-sized piece positions a broad, plump bowl at the fore of a slender, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. The reduced diameter of the shank and stem keeps the form minimalist and streamlined in profile, while the bowl's curvaceous walls provide a full, natural presence in hand. The warm, smoky hues of the Amber Root finish dresses the stummel and highlight a handsome display of birdseye and flame grain about the bowl.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the Cumberland stem.--Davin Hylton
