English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (784) (F/T) (4) (R) (1969) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-36755

Dated to 1969, this vintage "784" Poker from Dunhill is presented in Group 4 size, its tall stature pairing well with a firm, upright posture. The bowl sits confidently atop a flat heel, with smooth, straight walls reaching up toward the rim and framing a capacious chamber. Out back is an arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement, with the stem tapering easily to the bit. Dunhill's Root Briar finish dresses the stummel in a warm, auburn stain, revealing a wealth of birdseye across both flanks.

The highest honor for a Dunhill pipe is to receive the prestigious Root Briar appellation. Root Briars have been coveted by pipe smokers ever since they first debuted in 1931, due to the fact that each pipe must boast briar completely free of even the most minor of blemishes. Dunhill has the strictest of standards and expectations for quality with all of their pipes, and so any block of briar that comes to bear the Root Briar stamp must indeed be superlative.
