Dunhill: Ruby Bark (3107) (2014) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5369
Sleek and streamlined, this "07" Prince from Dunhill is fitted to a straight, tapered stem, rather than the oft-seen lithely bent mouthpiece one normally associates with the design. This svelte, Group 3 rendition maintains the elegance of the traditional form, however, with the pert, Apple-like bowl displaying a smooth, beveled rim and plump, flattened base. It's seen here wearing the marque's vibrant Ruby Bark sandblast and is further accentuated by a gleaming band of 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 reimagined 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.-Angela Robertson
