Peterson: Dracula 125th Anniversary Sandblasted (XL11) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-77657

Outside of the Sherlock Holmes collection, the Original shape receives the "XL11" number designation. First introduced in 1987 as a one-off design, Peterson released the Original, a.k.a. the "XL11," to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet. Presenting the design with a different shape number allows collectors to enjoy the shape in finishes not otherwise offered in the Sherlock series, and while the presentation may differ, the form itself remains exactly the same. Essentially, the "XL11" is a larger version of Peterson's signature "05" Bell/Calabash, the proportions increased for an even bolder, more striking example of Peterson's iconic muscular aesthetic to accentuate the shape's curvaceous profile and flaring bowl.

Introduced in 2012, Peterson's Dracula series honors fellow Irishman and esteemed author Abraham "Bram" Stoker. Drawing inspiration from Stoker's titular novel, Dracula pipes offer a color palette worthy of the Count himself with a jet-black sandblast coinciding with the blood-red acrylic stems' inky swirls. A regal band of bright nickel separates stem from stummel and juxtaposes an elegant appeal against the rest of the piece's spooky aesthetic — similar to Dracula's own aristocratic, yet horrific nature. This particular, limited-edition Dracula pipe celebrates the 125th anniversary of Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897) with a single shape: Peterson's "XL11" Bell/Calabash, a design otherwise not offered in the regular-production Dracula series. Delivering elegance, flair, and an appropriate nod to the macabre that enthusiasts of the series have come to love, this special Dracula 125th Anniversary pipe is further accompanied by a stylish red leather pipe stand to complete the thematic motif.

Note: While this specific Peterson pipe has been photographed individually like our other pipes, the Peterson-branded leather stand accompanying it has not, and the pipe representing its use may or may not be the one offered here.
