Dunhill: Bruyere (2111) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6094
A less common piece for Dunhill, this Lovat, rendered in sleek and diminutive Group 2 proportions, makes for a pocket pipe of exceeding quality. The bowl rests at the end of a slender, almost pencil-thin round shank. With a sloping heel and thick-walled bowl housing plenty of chamber, the composition of this pipe is mostly in balance, with just a hint of emphasis on the bowl. Paired with a comfortably wide saddle stem that bears Dunhill's signature white spot, this piece has an air of understated elegance.
The Bruyere was Alfred Dunhill's original finish upon launching his brand of premium pipes and smoking accessories and was the only Dunhill finish from 1910 until 1917. Even after the addition of other finishes, the Bruyere maintained a high level of popularity, becoming synonymous with what is thought of, even today, as the quintessential pipe. To achieve the iconic, ruby hue and saturation, a skilled craftsman painstakingly layers particular stains in a precise manner, then meticulously polishes the pipe to a high luster. The final result is, simply put, timeless.-Gabriel Bass
