Dunhill: Ruby Bark (5203) (2022) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6397
A bold, English-style Billiard, Dunhill's "03" defines the form with a full-bodied bowl and austere presence in profile. This Group 5-sized example is made all the more regal by the trim sterling silver band along its shank end, before transitioning to the long, sleek saddle stem. It's presented here in the scarlet sandblast of the Ruby Bark finish, with the beveled rim left smooth for textural contrast but stained a similar hue to complement the rest of the stummel.
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 re-imagined 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.-Truett Smith
