Dunhill: Shell Briar Quaint Belge (2) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6182
This sleek Belge shape is presented as part of Dunhill's Quaint series, a line reserved for designs that don't align with the exacting English marque's strict shaping system. With its forward canted, Group 2 bowl poised at the end of a pencil-thin, streamlined, and very svelte shank and stem, this piece is elegant, genteel, and lightweight. Modeled after the design of vintage clay pipes, its old-school appeal is further accentuated by its Shell Briar finish.
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
