Dunhill’s Canine Expression

A symbol of Great Britain’s invincible spirit, the bulldog is an iconic element within Dunhill’s repertoire of luxury accessories. It dates back to the turn of the 20th century when the British-based brand sold bulldog car mascots to Edwardian motorists. And today, it takes center stage in the Alfred Dunhill Bulldog collection of products—from paperweights to key rings, cuff links to pens.   

The limited-edition Bulldog Fountain Pen is black resin with sterling silver appointments—including the face of the canine poised on the crown. The cap is encircled with two rings, each reminiscent of a studded dog collar, and the clip is in the shape of a paw. Priced at $3,450, it is available at Dunhill boutiques and select retailers. A limited edition of hand-carved onyx Bulldog Cufflinks is also available. (800.776.4053, www.dunhill.com)
