Irish Estates: Peterson Shamrock (608) (P-Lip) (1945-1947)
Product Number: 004-004-8053
While Peterson's signature shaping style is often described as muscular and robust, the Irish marque's portfolio boasts a diverse range of sizes within the same general design: The iconic "05" Bell/Calabash is made all the more grand in the "XL315"; the "03" bent Apple receives more palm-filling substance in the "XL02"; and the "65" bent Billiard is a trimmer option compared to the "X220" or "XL90." Such is the case with Peterson's "606" and "608" Pots — both display a similar profile and cater to the shape's characteristically broad and squat bowl, but the "608" here is scaled down a touch, making for a more lightweight, trimmer version of the "606." It's a stunning example of Peterson's older style, made all the more handsome by the Shamrock's warm stain and bright metal band. Having been fashioned in the first few years after WWII, sometime between 1945 and 1947, this is an incredible opportunity for Peterson collectors to get their hands on a vintage offering.-Truett Smith
