To begin, this is not your usual Peterson Calabash, or, to take it a step further, this is not your usual Peterson design period. Taking on the shape of a judge's gavel, this Calabash bears a very deep condensation chamber, and an almost equally deep tobacco chamber. The Hawkbill style shank and stem are positioned high on the bowl, to keep the drafthole high and dry. Every item, on this piece, is in excellent working condition, with only some minor cosmetic nicks and dings. It is also my suspicion that the cap was made from the same piece of briar as its stummel, with the flame grain on both pieces displaying similarly lively, fine-stranded patterns.
