  • In “Issue 1 / 2000” “Fellowship of the White Spot” Dunhill advised that its Archives had just acquired a Bruyere ‘Cavalier’ (identical to the 1952 pipe above) stating “The museum has a number of hand carved pipes in Root Briar but this their first in Bruyere”.
  • It appears that prior to the mid 1950s carved heads were Bruyeres but thereafter Roots.
