English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere (39) (F/T) (3) (A) (1969) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-34321
Dated to 1969, this "39" Lovat from Dunhill boasts all of the form's characteristic features, including an upright Billiard bowl, a long, round shank, and an abbreviated saddle stem. It's a sleek, straightforward composition that's clean, lean, and lightweight, both in hand and clenched between the teeth. Dressed in the warm Bruyere smooth finish, the stummel offers a wealth of striking grain, especially across the bowl, with vibrant birdseye peaking through the stain's ruby hues.
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
