Peterson: Carroll of Carrollton Limited Edition 2022 (208/246) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-78530
First released in 2021, Peterson's Carroll of Carrollton series commemorates the intertwined histories of the United States and Ireland, drawing inspiration from the only Irish-Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence: Charles Carroll of Carrollton. Born in Maryland to Irish immigrants, Carroll gained prominence in the Colonies during the mid-1770s not only as a landowner and tobacco planter but also as a revolutionary, distinguishing himself as a political figure and promoting the Revolution's cause by writing newspaper articles, giving speeches, and even participating in the Annapolis Tea Party — Maryland's lesser-known version of Boston's famed dissension. Carroll was subsequently elected as a delegate to the Continental Congress and later served as Maryland's first United States senator.
The second Carroll of Carrollton release, 2022's edition celebrates Carroll and the founding of the United States, with 246 limited-edition pipes — the number of years between the Declaration's signing in 1776 and this version's release. While last year's edition featured a sleek Belgique design, Carroll of Carrollton 2022 pipes further the series with a slender Dublin shape, following the line's theme of streamlined, demi-Churchwarden designs that evoke the refined silhouette of traditional, clay tavern pipes — as would have been smoked by those of Carroll's era. Moreover, this pipe boasts the Irish marque's signature silverwork in the form of a broad band, adding crisp regality against the stummel's smooth, chestnut finish. With only 246 total pipes made, Peterson's Carroll of Carrollton series is highly limited, and each individual pipe is serialized out of the total.-Truett Smith
