In the beginning Dunhill created Bruyere. And several years (1910-1917) it was the single brand made by the company of a firm and dense Calabrian briar. And though pre WWII “bruyeres” were marked just by a letter “A” instead of model, the Bruyere series is the one of the oldest long-livers not only in the Dunhill family, but also among all pipes in general. A stylish slightly bent dublin pipe from 1979!
The pipe markings are “DUNHILL \ BRUYERE”, “11781”, “MADE IN \ ENGLAND 19”. The length is 14.2 cm (5.59″), bowl’s height is 3.8 cm (1.5″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.4 cm (1.34″), internal diameter is 2.0 cm (0.79″). The depth is 3.1 cm (1.22″) and this pipe weights 25 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has normal smoked wear not excluding some roughness, but definitely without any major issues.
