Dunhill: Dress with Horn (3106) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4700
Dunhill's "06" Pot is seen here rendered in moderate Group 3 proportions, offering a versatile pipe of comfortable balance and convenient size. It offers the Pot design's characteristically broad chamber, with this rendition pairing the muscular bowl to a more slender shank and trim transition, and the composition is made even more aesthetically striking through the addition of a horn mount, which flares outward for elegant style. Typically, Dunhill's Dress finish pairs an ebony stain with a sterling silver accent, but here that flashy metal has been traded for the more understated, creamy hues of horn.
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 (though this rare example trades silver for horn), 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
