Peterson: Sherlock Holmes Rusticated Squire P-Lip Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-79253
In commemoration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's esteemed short fiction, Peterson's "Squire" design pays homage to The Adventure of the Reigate Squire, a piece from the "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" collection, in which the energetic Holmes forgoes recovering from the strain of his last caper to take up an unusual burglary case in the quiet Surrey countryside. Also referred to as the "XL15," this full-bodied, broad chambered bent Bulldog epitomizes the marque's robust, muscular approach to shaping with its thick, diamond shank and stout bowl.
Peterson of Dublin and Sherlock Holmes have enjoyed an inextricable association ever since Basil Rathbone first picked up a Peterson pipe on the silver screen. Rathbone's 14-film portrayal of the intrepid detective lasted from 1939 to 1946, and Peterson's Sherlock Holmes collection has honored that relationship since 1987. Peterson introduced the series with a one-off design commemorating the 100th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet, with more shapes released throughout the subsequent years, and the line has become a staple across the Irish marque's portfolio. Each pipe in the collection also showcases Peterson's exemplary silverwork — the firm being renowned for its application of sterling silver, with the factory's smiths having completed a years-long mentorship stewarded by Peterson's senior craftsmen. The Sherlock Holmes line boasts broad accent bands of the regal metal, etched with the collection's logo, contrasted here against a craggy, dark chocolate-stained rustication.-Truett Smith
