Peterson: Rosslare Royal Irish Sandblasted (05) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43143
I've long been a fan of the Rosslare series, smooth or sandblasted, and this particular sandblasted piece features such a rich palette of colors and textures, each simultaneously complementing and competing with each other, that I can't help but find it appealing. The jet-black-stained bowl; the bright, hard sterling silver fitments at the shank end and stem base; and the vibrant, warm acrylic stem all play together in fascinating and extraordinarily appealing ways. It's presented here in the "05" shape — one of the most iconic (perhaps the most iconic) of Peterson's shapes. It's easy to see why: It's not such a classically English shape that it's like all the other, for example, Billiards out there. It's an old, old Peterson shape, but one that has remained largely unique to them (or, at least, is perfectly recognizably as Peterson's shape when others make it).- Sykes Wilford
