English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere Patent (556) (4) (A) (1950) (Replacment Stem) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-33007

Dated to 1950, this "556" Acorn from Dunhill presents a tall, upright bowl that stands proudly atop a pointed heel at the fore of a steeply bent shank-and-stem arrangement. The shank and stem afford a comfortable smoking posture from which to enjoy the bowl's respectably deep chamber, while the transition offers plenty of space to drape a finger over. The fetching Bruyere smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights dense clusters of birdseye across the flanks of the bowl. The stem is a replacement, and the price has been adjusted accordingly.

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.
