Dunhill: Shell Briar with Barley Silver (4103) (2016) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5780
This "03" Billiard from Dunhill boasts an impressive sterling silver band that's further embellished by a striated visual pattern. Here such a generously sized accent band matches the robust proportions of this Group 4 rendition, exuding the classic shaping and superb proportions for which Dunhill is renowned.
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.-Truett Smith
