Irish Estates: Peterson Red Matte Spigot (221) (Fishtail) (2014)
Product Number: 004-004-7404
While the bent Billiard is a classic shape, rendered by countless companies, Peterson's "221" iteration is readily recognized as the work of the Irish marque because of the added visual weight attributed to the shank and transition. Such extra heft stretches the heel and provides more palm-filling substance. It makes for an eye-catching, muscular form in profile yet remains well balanced thanks to the curled transition and bent stem out back.
Along with their signature shaping style, Peterson of Dublin is renowned for their silverwork. The journey of becoming a Peterson silversmith requires years of training and personal mentorship from the factory's senior craftsmen, and the superlative results testify to such a demanding, lengthy process — each worker having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that every metal accoutrement made is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it. Peterson's Spigot line best showcases the Irish marque's signature silver treatment, fitting sterling silver around both the shank end and stem base in a spigot mount arrangement. The construction provides further reinforcement and durability and highlights even more sterling silver than would be used for a standard military mount. Presented here in the Red Matte Spigot finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to a dark rose stain for a more reserved take on the dress pipe aesthetic that calls to mind Dunhill's iconic Bruyere finish.-Truett Smith
