1980 Dunhill Root Briar 42083 Smooth Bent Rhodesian Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


To veteran pipe smokers, Dunhill needs no introduction. Beginning in 1907, Alfred Dunhill began selling Dunhill pipes at the tobacconist shop he owned on London’s Duke Street. Very quickly, these pipes gained the reputation of being the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of pipes due to how expertly crafted they were. Today, Dunhill is likely Britain’s most famous pipe manufacturer, and continues to produce some of the most treasured pipes a smoker can buy.

Debuted in 1931, Dunhill’s Root Briar has been the make’s top line standard finish for almost a century. These pipes achieve such a rank due to their superlative natural briar patterns, which are left to speak for themselves by a very light, blonde finish. As can be seen, this one has remarkable flame and straight grain flowing from its underside, up to the bead-lines of its bowl, with plenty of bird’s-eye covering the rest of the stummel.

The condition is near-mint. The finish is unblemished, with only a few, very minor, handling marks. This Dunhill came to us as part of our estates trade-in program, with what we are told should be its original box.
