English Estates: Dunhill Dress Quaint (1) (2004) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-35190

Dunhill's Quaint series features unique compositions that fall outside of the English marque's standard shape chart, with this Rhodesian being a fetching example of what the line has to offer. Presented in Group 1 size, this piece sees a petite, ridgeline-wrapped bowl posed at the fore of a sleek shank and a demurely curved tapered stem, the latter of which ensures a comfortable smoking posture. It's dressed in the classy, all-black Dress finish, complemented by the vulcanite stem and lent further elegance by a band of sterling silver around the shank end.

One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 as the Black Briar — renamed "Dress" in 1979 with the addition of silver — and is meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class and imbues each pipe it adorns with a sense of refinement and sophistication. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom.
