Dunhill: Mary Dunhill Two Pipe Set Root Briar/Shell Briar (7/7) (with Ventage Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6573

Made in homage to the legacy of Mary Dunhill, daughter of Alfred Dunhill and longtime chair of the Dunhill Group, this eponymous two pipe set is composed of a bent Rhodesian and bent Dublin, both rendered in sleek, demure proportions to recall the Ladies Pipes found in Dunhill's catalogs of years past. The Rhodesian is dressed in the English marque's coveted Root Briar finish, reserved for exceptional briar, while the bent Dublin is dressed in Dunhill's classic Shell Briar sandblast. Limited to 45 sets worldwide, each Mary Dunhill offering is presented in a custom-made Ventage case.

The highest honor for a Dunhill pipe is to receive the prestigious Root Briar appellation. Root Briars have been coveted by pipe smokers ever since they first debuted in 1931, due to the fact that each pipe must boast briar completely free of even the most minor of blemishes. Dunhill has the strictest of standards and expectations for quality with all of their pipes, and so any block of briar that comes to bear the Root Briar stamp must indeed be superlative.

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.
