Dunhill: Ruby Bark with Silver (4103) (2010) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5061
Epitomizing Dunhill's iconic style, this "03" Billiard offers a bold, Group 4-sized bowl and beautifully represents the archetypal pipe-chart standard. The White Spot is revered for its deft execution of line and proportion, and this piece delights in both aspects, the bowl robust yet balanced by the weight of the shank, while each line of shank, stem, and bowl is crisp and stoic. It's dressed in the English marque's iconic Ruby Bark finish, accented with sterling silver.
Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was re-imagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.-Truett Smith
