Tampers & Tools: Year of the Rooster Pewter Tamper
Product Number: 001-219-0005
The rooster represents the tenth year in the Chinese zodiac's 12-year calendar cycle. According to ancient Chinese tradition, the rooster represents punctuality, relating to the bird's characteristic announcement of morning. It was also believed that a rooster's call could ward off evil spirits, aptly associating the bird with good luck.
This pewter pipe tamper reveals a long, slender feather clutched in a rooster's foot, commemorating the Year of the Rooster. It's the perfect tamper to pair with an early-morning pipe, and you just might find it's as much of a good luck charm as it is a wonderfully practical pipe tool.
