English Estates: Dunhill Bruyere (6475) (F/T) (4) (A) (1958) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-36861

Dated to 1958, this "6475" Poker shows what would later become Dunhill's "20" Cherrywood with its subtly bent design. The bowl sits firmly atop the flattened heel with an eager forward cant, its straight walls rising toward the rounded rim. A compact shank transitions from the bowl and joins to a sleek saddle stem, with the former's slight downturn pairing with the rim for a softened profile. Completing this piece's vintage appeal is Dunhill's classic Bruyere finish dressing the stummel, revealing pepperings of birdseye across the left flank.

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.
