Dunhill: Ruby Bark Quaint Dublin (3) (2017) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5372
Dunhill's Quaint series offers pipes whose shaping falls outside of the marque's standard pipe chart, making for some unique and highly collectible combinations. This straight Dublin features a poised, slightly canted bowl with a pinched, oval shank and is one of the more gracile, gestural renditions we've seen from the English marque. Its trim, elegant proportions are well-suited to a low-profile application of the vibrant Ruby Bark sandblast and bright sterling silver accent band.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
