Dunhill: Dress Quaint Rhodesian (3) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6670

Although Dunhill typically sticks to their century-old shape chart, their Quaint series focuses on pipes that break the mold. This Group 3 size Rhodesian by Dunhill presents similar dimensions to their "17" Rhodesian, but adds organic curves to the muscular shape. The bottom of the bowl is nearly spherical, and the upper bowl displays a smooth taper to the rim. Compared to the broad bowl, the shank and stem are rather slim, which gives this pipe quite the trim profile. Furthermore, this muscular, curvaceous pipe features Dunhill's distinguished Dress finish.

One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 as the Black Briar — renamed "Dress" in 1979 with the addition of silver — and is meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class and imbues each pipe it adorns with a sense of refinement and sophistication. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom.
