English Estates: Dunhill Shell (32061) (1978) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33866
This "06" Dunhill Pot is a timeless rendition of the classic shape, featuring a broad, squat bowl at the fore of a slim round shank and comfortable tapered stem. Dressed in the Shell Briar sandblast, the stummel offers plenty of tactile interest.
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.-Gabriel Bass
