Curious, in this weeks Peterson batch we received two bold and beautiful, totally authentic "House Pipes" - the first in a very long time. Of course, this bent Billiard is not of the series, but with its gigantic size could easily slip in unnoticed. This pipe was actually created to celebrate the ancient and venerable firm's 140th Anniversary, which if you're counting, now tops 149 years. If you're looking for quality, the wonderful shape should be a given, but also notice the beautiful variation of flame grain encircling the bowl. Being a special edition, one would expect this 140th Anniversary briar to be adorned with some very impressive sterling, featuring a bust of the man who started it all, Charles Peterson.
