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 lightweight and compact canadian pipe from 1967!
The pipe markings are “DUNHILL \ BRUYERE”, “335 F/T”, “(3)A” (hardly visible), “MADE IN \ ENGLAND 7″ (almost invisible). The length is 13.2 cm (5.2″), bowl’s height is 4.1 cm (1.61″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.1 cm (1.22″), internal diameter is 1.7 cm (0.67″). The depth is 3.2 cm (1.26”) and this pipe weights 28 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem (a bit patched, you may identify the track under a good light), no filter. The chamber has been protected with a break-in coat.
