County (3257) (2019)
Compact and sturdy, this bent Dublin from Dunhill is rendered in Group 3 size and is a fine Sitter, thanks to the extended heel's flattened base. The rounded bowl shows the subtlest of flares and is paired to an abbreviated shank and gently downturned saddle stem for a striking profile. It's dressed in the earthy, rustic sandblast of the County finish that highlights the briar's handsome, natural grain patterns, while the rim has been left smooth, complementing the stummel's coloration.
Like the Cumberland finish, Dunhill's County line pairs rich, cumberland stems with delightfully textured sandblasts. Typically, County pieces wear a lighter stain, often falling between the Cumberland and Tanshell hues, and since its introduction in 1986, with only a brief hiatus, the County remains stalwart within Dunhill's portfolio, especially desired by lovers of brindled vulcanite and warm sandblasts.
