Dunhill: Shell Briar with Silver (4113) (2016) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7486

Dunhill's "13" bent Apple varies across Group sizes, typically taking on stout, plump proportions in smaller Group sizes, whereas larger renditions often present towering, arcing curves much like a bent Egg. This Group 4-sized "13" adheres closely to Anglo-French tradition, featuring the shape's quintessentially plump bowl and a high-kicking shank-and-stem arrangement, which promotes comfortable jaw-hanging. Additionally, this "13" is dressed in Dunhill's Shell Briar finish and boasts an ornate silver band, heightening the vintage charm.

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.
