DUNHILL Root Briar 572

DUNHILL Root Briar 572, (1960)

posted in: DUNHILL | 0

England, 1960

A very fine example from the top-grade Dunhill series. Typically, the absence of the year suffix suggests that the pipe was manufactured in 1960, as indicated by some experts, unless it falls within a patent period. However, the most intriguing detail of this pipe is the expertly replaced shank. The quality of the workmanship and the application of the stamping undeniably indicate that the procedure was conducted directly at the Dunhill factory, either as part of the production cycle or as a service maintenance. Perhaps that’s why the year suffix is missing.
