Dunhill: Dress Quaint Bent Billiard (4) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6843
Although Dunhill typically draws on their century-old shape chart for their pipe designs, their Quaint series focuses on pipes that break the mold. This bent Billiard by Dunhill bears some similarities to the marque's classic "02," but makes one major revision: the inclusion of a flattened area beneath the bowl that makes this pipe a stable Sitter. Furthermore, the iconic, well-bent profile presented here is showcases 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.--Zach Podl
