Irish Estates: Peterson Rosslare Classic (80s) (Fishtail) (2016)
Product Number: 004-004-7456
Peterson's "80S" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80S" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
Peterson's Rosslare lines are united by a combination of sterling work from the expert silversmiths of the Sallynoggin factory and bright, sun-inspired acrylic stems. In the Rosslare Classic, that silver is featured around the shank end, separating the dark-stained, smooth stummel from a radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic. It's a striking, modern aesthetic but one that calls to mind the early years of pipemaking when genuine amber was used to fashion mouthpieces.-Jeffery Sitts
