Dunhill: Shell Briar with Silver (4213) (2015) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7492

A soft heel, rounded, plump bowl, and gradual taper to the rim ensure a comfortable fit in hand from this robust Group 4 bent Apple from Dunhill. The gracefully arcing shank and elegantly downturned saddle stem further that relaxing aesthetic and should hang easily from the jaw. The ample curvature throughout the stummel leaves plenty of room to showcase Dunhill's iconic Shell Briar finish, the deep, dark, inky sandblast contrasted richly by a band of silver at the junction.

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.
