English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (2101) (1995) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-35460

Dated to 1995, this "01" Apple is rendered in diminutive Group 2 size, possessing a compact, lightweight build that makes for an excellent on-the-go pipe. The bowl is plump and petite, with rounded, supple walls that fit comfortably in hand. Out back, a slender shank-and-stem arrangement transitions from the bowl, creating a sleek silhouette. For added practicality, the stummel features a flattened underside, allowing this pipe to sit confidently. The stummel wears Dunhill's iconic Shell Briar finish, granting it a dark, rugged appearance.

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.
