Irish Estates: Peterson Kapp Royal (120) (Fishtail) (2012)
Product Number: 004-004-7295
A straight Dublin in classic Peterson style, the "120" features a more subtle flare toward the rim compared to other renditions and maintains the Irish marque's conventionally hearty and robust proportions. The profile displays an upright stance with little forward cant, and the firm heel results in a substantial presence in hand. Peterson's signature tubular aesthetic is on fine display, modifying the English shape chart standard with Peterson's charming, iconic personality.
Like the Rosslare lines, Peterson's Kapp Royal series pairs the Irish marque's popular shapes with sterling silver mounts and stems of vivid, amber-hued acrylic. It's a throwback to a 1960's and 1970's series and pays homage to the Kapp family, émigrés from Germany who opened a pipe shop in Dublin in 1874 and for whom Latvian immigrant Charles Peterson worked as a craftsman. Through this partnership was born Kapp & Peterson — now known and beloved across the pipesmoking world as simply Peterson. The Kapp Royal line is marked by a smooth, mahogany finish, Peterson's signature, in-house silverwork, and sunny stems to emulate the vintage look of amber, making for a bright and striking aesthetic.- Chuck Stanion
