English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (3407) (1999) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-34041

Presented in Group 3 size, this "07" Prince from Dunhill perches a pert, Apple-like bowl at the fore of an languidly bent shank-and-stem arrangement for an elegant, curvaceous appearance in profile. The steep downturn of the mouthpiece coupled with design's light weight ensure that this piece will hang rather comfortably from the jaw. It's handsomely dressed in the English marque's Shell Briar sandblast, which harmonizes quite well in color with the mouthpiece of jet-black vulcanite.

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.
