English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (4107) (2015) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-36877

Offered in moderately sized Group 4 dimensions, this "07" Dunhill Prince is quite elegant, with a lithe, arrow-straight shank and elongated stem arrangement giving it the princely grace that lovers of the shape seek. This sleekness reinforces the visual presence of the plump bowl, allowing one to fully appreciate the broad, low-set waistline and subtle taper to the rim. Dressed in the English marque's timeless and iconic Shell Briar sandblast, the stummel's deep, inky stain reveals some handsome grain, pairing well with the black stem for a classic, refined aesthetic.

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.
