Dunhill: Amber Root Quaint Bent Billiard Sitter with Silver (5) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4135
A unique bent Billiard from Dunhill, this piece fits squarely between standard and Churchwarden length — the stem definitely longer than typical but not quite stretching into Churchwarden realm. Most unique about this pipe, though, is the lower front portion of the bowl having been paneled at an angle toward the heel. Such a feature enables the form to sit upright, the lithe stretch of stem and silver-adorned shank almost directly vertical and the canted bowl at a sharp enough angle not to spill its contents. Typically, long, bent pipes aren't well-suited for desktop-sitting, making this quite the versatile piece and perfect for the Quaint series: a Dunhill line that showcases designs not seen on the English marque's standard shape chart.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Truett Smith
