Dunhill: Shell Brair Quaint Bent Pot (4) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5576
A stout bent Pot from Dunhill, this easily manageable Group 4 offers a generous chamber within thick, insulating walls and a flattened heel that enables it to sit sturdily upright. This rendition is part of the English marque's Quaint line of pipes that are a stylistic departure from the shape chart standards and offers a more bespoke presentation. The sturdy bowl is paired to a rather Prince-like gentle rise and downturn of the stem at the bit for a striking profile and is dressed in the grain-accentuating dark sandblast of the Shell Briar finish.
The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe-smoking history. Before 1917, pipes with sandblasted finishes had never been made, and Alfred Dunhill's innovative mind created arguably the most popular finish for pipes today when he unveiled the Shell Briar. With its dark, reserved color palette and delightful texture, it's no surprise that it's still wildly popular over a century later.-Angela Robertson
