Dunhill: Amber Root (5128) (2015)
Product Number: 002-015-5289
A classic shape despite being rarely seen, the oval-shanked Diplomat remains a favorite among collectors of traditional English pipes. This "28" from Dunhill is an archetypal, timeless rendition that's rendered in Group 5 size. Sturdily proportioned, yet smoothly graceful, it offers chamber proportions similar to those of a Pot and its charming, broad base lends it a voluptuous feel in hand. Curvaceous and emboldened by a Prince-like bend of stem, this piece is dressed in the refined, smooth finish of the Amber Root.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Angela Robertson
