Dunhill: Bruyere Quaint Dublin (4) (DD) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4635
Dunhill's Quaint series consists of shapes not on the marque's traditional shape chart. It allows for some variance in Dunhill's portfolio without the need to add more and more shape numbers and shows off the company's more creative side. This particular Quaint Dublin is fairly reserved, though the bowl's genteel disposition is juxtaposed against the diamond shank's firm ridgelines while the hand-cut, tapered stem keep the lines of the shank clean, consistent, and sleek. Said bowl displays a poised, upright stance with a subtle ridgeline along the upper bowl introducing the tapered rim. Rendered in Group 4 proportions, this piece is tastefully dressed in the rich, ruby tones of the Bruyere finish.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
