Dunhill: Millennium Hallmark Shell Briar with Silver (5103) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4628
The Millennium Hallmark line from Dunhill boasts impressive sterling silver bands with the silver's hallmarks having been magnified to add further detail and quite the regal disposition. Here such a band adorns the English marque's iconic "03" straight Billiard, presented in a generous Group 5 size and exuding the classic shaping and superb proportions for which Dunhill is renowned.
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.-Truett Smith
