Peterson: Ebony Spigot (B53) Fishtail

Product Number: 002-029-67514

Peterson's "B" designs are unique within the Irish marque's portfolio, often beginning as limited series designs and typically combining aesthetic elements of various classic shapes. In the case of this "B53," the form originated in the Sherlock Holmes collection as the Moran. Compositionally, the "B53" is a large, bold piece, combining the stolid diamond shank of a Bulldog with a firm, upright Billiard bowl. Angled at the transition and downturned of stem, the continuation of the shank's underside lends the bowl an Acorn-like silhouette as the heel comes to a slight point. Hearty and masculine, the "B53" is a unique design that caters to those who appreciate traditional shaping motifs presented in less-often seen combinations, all in Peterson's signature style.

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 was created in 1977, after discovering an old Peterson catalog from 1906 that pictured pipes with spigot mounts, and the series is among the best at showcasing 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 Ebony Spigot finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to a glossy, black stain for a thoroughly classy dress pipe aesthetic.
