Dunhill: Amber Root (3217) (2017) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5783
Saddle-stemmed versions of Dunhill's "17" Bulldog rendition are less common than the tapered stem variety. It changes the overall demeanor of the design considerably, the negative space and diminution of the saddle stem adding more prominence and stocky muscularity to this particular Group 3 example. The "17" is Dunhill's more squat and broad Bulldog, compared to the taller "04," and that difference is well personified by this piece, dressed in the dark, smoky hues of the Amber Root finish.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Truett Smith
