Dunhill: Ruby Bark (3110) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6169

With its lengthy shank and stem combination, this beautiful Dunhill "10" Billiard should no doubt prove to be quite an elegant, refined smoker, calling to mind the long-stemmed pieces often seen accompanying Bing Crosby in old photographs. Its trim, elegant proportions make it particularly well-suited to a presentation like the one seen here, as it's dressed in the vibrant crimson stain of the Ruby Bark sandblast. A bright band of sterling silver provides some brilliant contrast and further accentuates this piece's charming, outgoing aesthetic. What's more, the rim has been chamfered and left smooth, stained a lighter, auburn stain for a subtle accenting touch.

Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was reimagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.
