I have always liked the look of 4 engine airliners. Which is the most gracefully of all the 4 engine airliners. Possible contenders:
De Havilland Comet
Feel free to suggest others. My favorite is the Boeing 747.

Boeing 307 Stratoliner or the Douglas DC-7 Seven Seas. Two of the most promising airliners of their times, both of which fell victim to factors out of the industry's control-WWII killed the Stratocruiser and the Jet Age killed the Seven Seas.
