This large (Group 6) paneled billiard from Dunhill is a real treasure. It’s fully bent with a square shank joined to the vulcanite stem with a generous silver band textured in vertical ridges. The “shell briar” finish is a dark sandblast that brings out a tight grain texture. The squared off sides are rounded slightly on the corners, bringing subtlety to the geometric shape. A classic gentleman’s pipe for a long, leisurely smoke in the evening!
