Dunhill: Bruyere (6102) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5091
A handsome, classic pipe, this "02" bent Billiard by Dunhill is rendered here in hearty, Group-6 size with the bowl housing a wealth of chamber depth. A plump rounded heel melds into the gently arching shank and downturned stem, ensuring a curvaceous, sinuous silhouette. Despite the bowl's height and deep chamber, this piece reveals proportions that are quite sleek and slender, fitting with a military mount of vulcanite at the shank end.
The Bruyere was Alfred Dunhill's original finish upon launching his brand of premium pipes and smoking accessories and was the only Dunhill finish from 1910 until 1917. Even after the addition of other finishes, the Bruyere maintained a high level of popularity, becoming synonymous with what is thought of, even today, as the quintessential pipe. To achieve the iconic, ruby hue and saturation, a skilled craftsman painstakingly layers particular stains in a precise manner, then meticulously polishes the pipe to a high luster. The final result is, simply put, timeless.-Angela Robertson
