English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere Patent (35) (F/T) (A) (1950) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-35034

Dated to 1950, this Billiard from Dunhill represents the marque's patent era and showcases the timelessness of their shape chart, presenting a streamlined profile that speaks to the well-balanced proportions and sleek design of English pipe making. The stoic bowl sits poised at the front of the piece, with the low-slung shank-and-stem combination bolstering its firm posture with straight lines. Lightweight and agile in hand, this piece wears the classic Bruyere finish, deftly accentuating the gorgeous flame grain across the flanks of the bowl and shank, making for a visually rich stummel that pairs well to the jet-black vulcanite stem.

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.
