English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar with 10mm Silver (42025) (1978) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-34243

This "42025" Hungarian by Dunhill possesses an upright bowl that bulges at the midsection before tapering to the rim. Furthermore, the underside of the stummel is flattened, making this pipe a stable Sitter. The shank rises out of a broad transition and joins to a lithe tapered stem at a shining silver band, adding a distinguished flourish to the rugged Shell Briar finish.

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.
