A shape that is truly Peterson's own, the "Bell" has been a staple for a long time. A design with such appeal, and one that's inspired many pipemakers to reproduce it, will always be a reminder of the Peterson legacy and can only truly come into its own when coupled with the thick shank and bent stem marked with a "P". To complete this example, part of the Donegal Rocky series, chiseled rustication here produces an aged appeal to go along with the illustrious history of the shape. As an older example of the Donegal line, this briar sports a sterling silver, rather than nickel band.
