English Estates: Dunhill Dress (6117) (2019) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-33609

While still displaying the squat, low-set demeanor of Dunhill's classic "17" Bulldog shape, this Group 6 rendition presents an even broader disposition, filling the palm with its Saucer-like waistline. When seen in Group 6, the shape often trades its conventional beadlines for softer ridge to demarcate the rim's taper, but this version maintains those indents for a crisp aesthetic. Such a bold, hearty version of the "17" is decidedly more rare, making this piece a find for collectors, all dressed in the formal Dress finish.

One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 as the Black Briar — renamed "Dress" in 1979 with the addition of silver — and is meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class and imbues each pipe it adorns with a sense of refinement and sophistication. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom.
