England, 1972-74

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 very lightweight and compact poker pipe with the double year suffix – firstly it was stamped with the “12” (1972) and then there was added the stamp “14” (a bit hardly visible, but it refers to 1974).

The pipe markings are “DUNHILL \ BRUYERE”, “767 F/T”, “MADE IN \ ENGLAND 12”, “(2) A”. The length is 12.1 cm (4.76″), bowl’s height is 3.9 cm (1.54″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.2 cm (1.26″), internal diameter is 2.1 cm (0.83″). The depth is 3.4 cm (1.34″) and this pipe weights 19 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
