Dunhill: Bruyere Quaint Bent Dublin (4) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4441
The Bell/Calabash shape isn't a new design by any means, with examples dating back over a century, and this bent Dublin hews closely to that design. However, it's not a shape that Dunhill features on their standard shape chart, and for that reason, it's presented here in the Quaint series and devoid of shape number. The form itself, though, fits well into the White Spot's devotion to classic English style, and the extra curves through the bowl, along with the curling transition, conform naturally to wrapped fingers, while the stretch of bent stem balances the piece out when clenched.
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.-Truett Smith
