Irish Estates: Peterson Donegal Rocky with Silver (221) (P-Lip) (2007) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-004-12172
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.
Named after County Donegal in northwest Ireland, Peterson's Donegal Rocky series offers one of the Irish firm's most distinctive and immediately recognizable finishes. Much like the mountainous region it's inspired by, the rustication style of the Donegal Rocky line is incredibly craggy and provides plenty of stimulating texture, transforming any pipe that wears it into a rugged workhorse smoker. Peterson's first rusticated finish, the Donegal Rocky dates back to 1945, and this particular example is presented here with a bright brand of sterling silver.-Truett Smith
