Dunhill: Black Briar Quaint Bent Billiard Sitter (4) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5714
Dunhill's Quaint series is made up of pipes that depart from the English marque's standard shape chart. This bent Billiard sitter is a more reserved piece for the quaint line, opting for non-standard accoutrements and features rather than whimsical shaping. A pert Billiard bowl rests on a paneled underside at the fore of a balanced round shank equipped with a flared mount and bent vulcanite stem. This pipe can be clenched with ease in addition to its sitting versatility. Dressed in Dunhill's Black Briar finish, the stummel cuts an elegant and dashing figure in its deep black stain.
The Black Briar shares origins with Dunhill's Dress finish, first introduced in 1973 and characterized by a smooth, ebony finish. In 1979, though, the English marque renamed the line "Dress" with the addition of sterling silver, contributing to what would later become known as the dress-pipe style. That said, The White Spot still produces Black Briar pipes, though on a considerably less frequent basis. They share the same finish as Dunhill's Dress pipes but forego the silver accent for a more reserved presentation of elegance and class, lending this pipe a distinctly formal aesthetic that's ready for any black-tie affair.-Gabriel Bass
