English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere (3103) (2001) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-34111
Widely considered by many to be the archetypal Billiard, Dunhill's "03" is a timeless shape marked by sturdy craftsmanship, well-balanced proportions, and an understated elegance. This particular rendition is presented in handy Group 3 size and features a pert, upright bowl that's poised at the fore of a slender, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. The overall form is lightweight and streamlined, and it's handsomely presented in the dark, smoky hues of the Bruyere smooth finish.
The Bruyere was Alfred Dunhill's original finish upon launching his brand of premium pipes and smoking accessories and was the only Dunhill finish from 1910 until 1917. Even after the addition of other finishes, the Bruyere maintained a high level of popularity, becoming synonymous with what is thought of, even today, as the quintessential pipe. To achieve the iconic, ruby hue and saturation, a skilled craftsman painstakingly layers particular stains in a precise manner, then meticulously polishes the pipe to a high luster. The final result is, simply put, timeless.--Davin Hylton
