English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (599) (4) (S) (1963) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33814
This "599" Stack dates back to a time before Dunhill introduced their four-digit naming convention. The Group size of this pipe is 4, indicated by a "4" stamped inside a circle. The Stack design is quite similar to that of Dunhill's Billiard, just with an elongated bowl and shank that retain their trim proportions. A protracted, jet-black, vulcanite tapered stem complements the dark ravines and red-hued peaks of Dunhill's Shell Briar.
The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe-smoking history. Before 1917, pipes with sandblasted finishes had never been made, and Alfred Dunhill's innovative mind created arguably the most popular finish for pipes today when he unveiled the Shell Briar. With its dark, reserved color palette and delightful texture, it's no surprise that it's still wildly popular over a century later.--Zach Podl
