Dunhill: Shell Briar Quaint Bent Brandy (5) (2019) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7154

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 Brandy features a towering, shapely bowl that closely resembles Dunhill's "33" Brandy, and its Group 5 size manifests a robust feel in hand. However, the shank-and-stem arrangement features a notable revision, as it possesses an ovoid construction that manifests a sleek, aquiline character in profile but also balances the weighty bowl at the fore. Additionally, this Quaint bent Brandy is dressed in Dunhill's iconic Shell Briar finish.

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.
