Here is a Dunhill Shell Billiard that is 101 years old and sports an ivory spot, picked it up at a local yard sale for the princely sum of $1.00.

Of the three Dunhill's I have the oldest would be my BY Shell Apple from 1946. Sorry I don't have a way of posting the pic I have of it. :twisted:

Got me but one Dunnie in my modest collection. Not even sure of the year but it well may be from the 60's. Search did not help.

:scratch:


Cheers,

Mine is this Patent Era Pot, which I believe is from 1936:

Has a replacement stem, but after Mike at Walker Briar Repair refurbished it for me she looks good as new!

It's amazing that those pipes have lasted that long! Great finds! My only Dunhill is a Shell Briar billiard #42032 I purchased in 1985 while working part time at the local tobacco shop.
