Dunhill: Shell Briar with Horn (5113) (2017) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-5024

Dunhill's "13" bent Apple isn't a particularly unique sight, though it is rarer to see it in such a large, Group 5 size. When fashioned in such size, the bowl typical takes a different form than in smaller Group sizes: Instead of squat and broad, this rendition is tall and slender, still rounded in Apple fashion but exhibiting a more Egg-like stance. It offers considerably more chamber depth, and this pipe is further elevated by a military mount of creamy horn contrasting against the dark palette of 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.
