Irish Estates: Peterson Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (D5) (Fishtail) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-004-10160
The "D" line of shapes within Peterson's portfolio were originally produced for the Irish marque's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, and these designs typically embody an aesthetic more akin to Danish pipe design, forgoing Peterson's signature muscular and robust shaping style. For the "D5" Billiard, such Danish inspiration is manifested in a slightly longer, more slender shank-and-stem combination and a trimmer, softer-lined bowl. It makes for a pipe that boasts Peterson's quality but in a different style, adding diversity and variety to the marque's vast shape chart.
One of Peterson's most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In the smooth iteration, it highlights the briar's natural grain pattern with handsome reservation — not distracting from the form's shape yet, at the same time, offering enough definition and detail to remain intriguing and individual, accented here with a flashy nickel band to add some formal panache and elegant appeal.-Truett Smith
