Dunhill: Root Briar Dublin with Silver (DR*) (2023) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7555

A handsome rendition of the Dublin shape, this piece from Dunhill features a tall bowl that flares from its firm, conservative heel to its broad, subtly inflated rim. As the bowl flares, it takes on a pronounced forward cant that keeps the entire shape looking active and dynamic in profile. Out back, a trim oval shank and a sleek tapered stem extend from the low-set transition and anchor most of the composition's visual weight at the fore. The gorgeous Root Briar finish dresses this piece and highlights lively strands of flame across the bowl's flank.

Dunhill's "DR" designation on certain Root Briars signifies a special class of pipes: Dead Root. Like all Root Briars, these pieces maintain flawless briar, but with especially choice grain on display. Before the Root Briar line's introduction in 1931, "DR" was stamped on Bruyere pipes that showed handsome grain, but Dunhill wanted a more grain-defining finish, leading to the creation of the Root Briar. Starting in 1979, The White Spot extended the grade further — replacing the letter grading system with stars, increasing in prestige from one to seven. A Dead Root pipe represents the best of Dunhill's standard selection, yet remains quite rare compared to the English marque's overall lineup.
