Irish Estates: Peterson Founder's Edition 150th Anniversary Smooth (896/1865) (Fishtail) (2015)
Product Number: 004-004-6954
The Founder's Edition certainly appeals to collectors, with its limited production and broad, sterling silver band. However, there it is also a practical smoker, smaller and lighter than a House Pipe. When I say smaller, mind you, I don't mean on the inside, as the chamber dimensions are on par with the usual House Pipe bent Billiard. What it is, is simply shorter of stem and leaner in the outer shaping of the bowl and shank. This particular example is number 896 out of 1865 (1865 being the year of Peterson's founding). As for condition, it has some dings on the rim, some chamber carbonizing, a bit of char around the airway, and rim darkening.- Kaz Walters
