English Estates: Dunhill Ruby Bark (5109) (2017) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-33052

No matter its Group size, Dunhill's "09" Canadian is a lesson in beautiful proportions that scale well no matter the piece's overall size. In fact, the English marque has set the standard for traditional shaping — with other brands and artisan carvers looking to Dunhill for shaping and proportions. Especially noteworthy on this Group 5 example is the consistent curve followed by both the transition and heel, balancing the piece pleasantly. It's all dressed in the vibrant crimson stain and silver accent of the striking Ruby Bark sandblast, revealing handsome grain throughout.

Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was reimagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.
