English Estate Pipe: Dunhill 7 Shell Patent 1920-1923 Cased For Sale
DUNHILL 7 SHELL PATENT
An extremerarity– in its original fitted case, thisoutrageously craggy-surfaced Shell bears a patent number that was used from 1920 to 1923. Since no date code appears to have been stamped on it, most likely the pipe was sold in 1920. The mouthpiece is original, with an ivory White Spot and traces of the registration number on the underside. The original Inner Tube was leftintact for over 90 years. The bowl was woefully cracked from build-up of excessive cake, but has been skillfullyrenewed to itsformer glory. It is certainly sound and smokeable, and the fissures require magnification for most eyes to see them. The case is in excellent condition inside and out, works fine, and displays the Ventage patent.
Leather clad fitted case with patent number included.
