Thank you very much! I had a great day and smoked way more than I should have. My last cigar of the day was Cohiba Sublime EL from '04 and last pipe of the day was MM 965 in my 1915 dunnie billiard. I wish I could do that every day. Very Happy

Del,

The Root finish didn't appear until 1930. Before that Dunhill's only smooth finish was the Bruyere, which is a deep plum color.

hmmmm...the nomenclature has

left side

A Dunhill
Duke St. S.W.

right side

Made In England
"Inner Tube"
Pat No. 5681/12 3

I have a Root briar also in the apple shape. These aren't the same finish. This Billiard is a Bruyere.

Mucho strange-o...

Dating early (teens and 20's) Dunhills is tricky because the nomenclature was frequently changed, but as inconsistent as it was they were all Bruyeres. The Root hadn't been invented yet.

Refinishing a Bruyere to the Root's brown would be difficult to pull off without the stamping retaining a too-dark color, too.

My head hurts.

Have you ever taken the pipe to a show & had it eyeballed by Les Sechler, John Loring, or etc?

Are the photos you posted true color-wise?

LL, I haven't been to a pipe show. It seems like every time one comes around, my better half has something for me to do or somewhere for us to go. Didn't Mr. Loring pass away recently? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else. I've gone through his web site on dating dunhills and that of pipephil.

You don't know what you're missing. Cool Tell da wiff to visit her sister or something the next time a major show comes around.

John did indeed die suddenly a few weeks ago. He was the planet's #1 guy regarding pre-war Dunnies, and the teens and twenties were his passion. Rich Esserman, Les Sechler, and a few others are still going strong, though. Mike Hagley has seen a lot of pipes, though he doesn't document stuff in the scholarly way Loring did.

There is nothing if not exceptions and one-offs when it comes to early Dunhills, meaning you might have something really special. Some rich guy might have demanded a Bruyere pipe be stained brown as a special order, for example, and made an offer Alfred couldn't refuse. Anything's possible. You can be sure I'm not the only one intrigued by your pipe, anyway. You might post some pics to a bigger forum than BoB to see what comes of it.

LL, if you'd like a real mystery, I have a dunhill root apple with this nomenclature.

left side:

R
DUNHILL
LONDON
U


Right side:

U
MADE IN ENGLAND2 18 192
PAT No. 417574/34 20



I'm guessing that it's a 1942 going by the #2 after the MADE IN ENGLAND with that patent number but not sure about the underlined 18 after it. The underlined 18 would date it after 1955 but there were no patent era dunhills for that to work. Thus, I'm thinking 1942. the 192 after the year stamp is of course the shape code.

I'm not sure what the 20 after the PAT NO means.

I have absolutely no idea why it's got a U stamped under LONDON on the left side and a U stamped on the right side next to the bowl on the right side.


We're really jacking this thread to death! tongue
