Dunhill: Shell Briar with Silver (2213) (2022) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-7051
Dunhill presents a bent Apple here that is uncommon in shape and size, making it even more versatile and appealing. This "13" offering is rendered in Group 2 size for a rare combination, with the small, forward-urging bowl featuring a lifted heel and a more squat design than is often seen in Apple shapes. A tight transition and sinuous S-curve imbue this piece with even more gracefulness, with the overall aesthetic being that of an elegant, high-quality pipe, further ennobled by a bright silver accent band.
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
