Irish Estates: Peterson Rosslare Royal Irish Sandblasted (408) (Fishtail) (2016)
Product Number: 004-004-7477
Combining elements of the Author, Prince, and bent Apple, Peterson's "408" maintains a classic profile yet doesn't fit exactly into the traditional pipe chart. The voluptuous bowl and hearty shank cater well to the Irish marque's muscular design aesthetic, and the unique form demands attention — showcasing classic shaping cues and offering a plump in hand presence.
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. The Rosslare Royal Irish takes that further, though, offering fitments not only at the shank end but about the stem base too. The accoutrements combine beautifully with the radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic, seen here, while the vivid palette contrasts against the dark-stained sandblast of the stummel.-Truett Smith
