Dunhill: Ring Grain with Silver (5203) (2023) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7546

In hearty Group 5 proportions, this classic Billiard from Dunhill presents the English marque's traditional style in palm-filling size, sure to please large-pipe enthusiasts. A thoroughly English pipe, the proportions, while large, maintain the balance between bowl height and shank length that characterize the traditional Billiard shape. With a softly rounded heel that curves deftly into a thick, round shank and saddle stem, the silhouette is all crisp, clear lines. This pipe is finished in the crisp sandblast of Dunhill's iconic Shell Briar finish, earning the marque's coveted Ring Grain designation thanks to its stunning display of rippling growth rings.

Having earned the English marque's prestigious Ring Grain designation, this Dunhill piece wears a particularly choice iteration of the Shell Briar sandblast — displaying stunning waves of ring grain across the stummel. 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.
