English Estates: Dunhill Black Briar (21101) (1981) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33859
This "21101" Dunhill Liverpool is a timeless rendition of the shape, featuring a pert bowl at the fore of a slim round shank and tapered vulcanite stem. Dressed in the English marque's Black Briar finish, time has mellowed the stain to a rich mahogany hue.
The Black Briar shares origins with Dunhill's Dress finish, first introduced in 1973 and characterized by a smooth, ebony finish. In 1979, though, the English marque renamed the line "Dress" with the addition of sterling silver, contributing to what would later become known as the dress-pipe style. That said, The White Spot still produces Black Briar pipes, though on a considerably less frequent basis. They share the same finish as Dunhill's Dress pipes but forgo the silver accent for a more reserved presentation of elegance and class, lending this pipe a distinctly formal aesthetic that's ready for any black-tie affair.-Gabriel Bass
