Details

The ODA designation for Dunhill meant a particularly large shape.  In this case the Dublin was sanblasted and finished in red for their Red Bark series (later production was called Ruby Bark and featured a silver band).  The markings in the nomenclature refer to the F/T or fish tailed stem and the R/B for Red Bark.  The underlined number after the ENGLAND refers to the date of production (underlining began in 1960 so a 13 dates to 1973), and then an additional 15.  The addition of another date reference could be a modification made in the factory or possibly the year it was sold.  Whatever the provenance this sizable smoker is a treasure from the last days of the golden era of pipe smoking.  As is often the case with the ODAs, there is a good draw in this old english wood and aside from some rim darkening this gem is in wonderful shape.
