Dunhill: Millennium Hallmark Shell Briar with Silver (4105) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6236
Originally crafted in 2000 to celebrate the dawn of the new millennium, Dunhill's Millennium Hallmark series presents classic English shapes in the dark Shell Briar sandblast and accents them with sterling silver bands. This "05" Dublin showcases the Millennium's Hallmark series' tasteful aesthetics rather brilliantly, its sterling silver accent offering vibrant contrast to the shadowy Shell Briar finish. Shape-wise, it's a handy Group 4-sized pieces that positions a tall, flaring bowl at the fore of a sleek stretch of shank and stem.
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.--Davin Hylton
