English Estates: Dunhill Shell (258) (F/T) (1) (S) (1965) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-34367

This "258" Prince by Dunhill is a timeless rendition of the shape chart standard, placing a pert, plump bowl at the fore of a slim round shank and willowy stem of tapered vulcanite. Dressed in the iconic Shell Briar sandblast, the stummel offers a wealth of texture for the fingers to explore. Dating to 1965, this vintage will be of interest to collectors of classic English pipes.

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.
