English Estates: Dunhill Amber Root (1202) (2017) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-34168
It's very uncommon to find Dunhill's "02" bent Billiard in Group 1 size as presented in this enthralling piece. Rendered in pocket-friendly proportions, the bowl remains curvaceous and is paired to a sinuous S-curve, minimizing the overall length. A tight transition here gives way to a lifting shank, one which meets a smartly curved saddle stem whose extended bit slenderizes this pipe even further. Dressed in the handsome Amber Root finish, this piece exudes class and elegance and showcases lovely grain throughout.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-John McElheny
