Dunhill: Shell Briar with Silver (4124) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5989
Dunhill's "24" is a crisply faceted Foursquare, seen here in the rather muscular, bold proportions of Group 4 size, which aligns well with the shape's structural, geometric disposition. The pipe's paneled underside promotes sturdy sitting, and it's smartly finished in the marque's dark, grain-defining Shell Briar sandblast that's lent handsome ornamentation in the form of a gleaming silver accent band for a sophisticated, dress-pipe aesthetic.
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
