English Estates: Dunhill Ruby Bark (4103) (2011) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-35495

With a chamfered rim that adds a smooth contrast to the textured sandblast of the bowl, this Dunhill Billiard provides a uniquely subtle flair to a tried and true shape. Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish draws out the beautifully ornate growth rings of the briar across the circumference of the bowl. A silver band marks the transition from shank to stem, creating a visual demarcation between the roundness of the shank and the steady tapering of the stem. With a clean transition and the flattened panel on the heel, this pipe is a an ideal Sitter for any smoker who likes to multitask.

Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was reimagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.
