English Estates: Dunhill Red Bark (112) (F/T) (2) (R/B) (1972) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-20628

Dated to 1972, this Apple from Dunhill is a timeless rendition of the classic shape. This lightweight Group 2 sized piece features a pert, plump bowl formed by supple walls curving from heel to rim, creating a figure that fits comfortably in the hand. Out back is a slender shank-and-stem arrangement, with the stem's lengthy taper lending this pipe a sleek silhouette. The stummel wears Dunhill's Red Bark finish, granting this piece a crisp, crimson-stained sandblast for an especially vintage look.

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.
