Dunhill: Dress Quaint Apple (1) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4698
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 Apple is fairly reserved compared to other designs in the series and despite the lengthy appearance of the hand-cut vulcanite stem, this is a piece that's still conveniently sized. As a Group 1-sized piece, it's also extremely light and should be effortless to clench, while the smaller chamber is ideal for pipe smokers in search of a piece that can accommodate shorter smoking sessions. It's presented here in the ever-classy aesthetic of the Dress finish, pairing an extra-dark, glossy stain with a trim, sterling silver accent band.
One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 and is meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class and imbues each pipe it adorns with a sense of refinement and sophistication. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom.- Jeffery Sitts
