Peterson: Green Spigot (01) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-59360
The Pot is an inherently muscular shape, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height and often displaying a thick-walled substance in hand. When rendered from Peterson, though, the shape exhibits even more muscularity. The Irish marque's aesthetic is conventionally characterized as stout and hearty, and it's exemplified in Peterson's "01" bent Pot — the shank and transition echoing the robustness of the bowl, while remaining well balanced thanks to the stem's quarter bend.
Along with their signature shaping style, Peterson of Dublin is renowned for their silverwork. The journey of becoming a Peterson silversmith requires years of training and personal mentorship from the factory's senior craftsmen, and the superlative results testify to such a demanding, lengthy process — each worker having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that every metal accoutrement made is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it. Peterson's Spigot line best showcases the Irish marque's signature silver treatment, fitting sterling silver around both the shank end and stem base in a spigot mount arrangement. The construction provides further reinforcement and durability and highlights even more sterling silver than would be used for a standard military mount. Presented here in the Green Spigot finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to a Peterson's signature emerald stain for a unique, distinctly Irish take on the dress pipe aesthetic.-Truett Smith
