Dunhill: Shell Briar (1403) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4897
A unique design from Dunhill, this "03" Billiard is rendered in Group 1 size, with the diminutive bowl poised at the end of an abbreviated shank and a vulcanite mount configuration featuring a push-style, elegantly bent, demi-Churchwarden mouthpiece. Willowy and sophisticated, this piece is dressed in the marque's original and most popular finish, the Shell Briar sandblast.
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.-Angela Robertson
