Peterson: Irish Harp (104) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-82381
Among Peterson's most svelte and soft-lined Billiard renditions, the "104" dates back to the 1906 catalog and is notably smaller than the Irish marque's "101," "X105," "106," and "107" Billiards. Its slender size is closest to the "102," and it comes in two versions: One features a standard, straight stem, while the other displays a subtle downturn for added elegance and languid curvature. Such a posture lends it a Prince-like air and one that makes this already portable pipe all the more comfortably clenched, with the straight version maintaining a sleek and stoic disposition for traditional appeal.
Marked by a smooth, walnut stain and acrylic stem to match, the Irish Harp line from Peterson poses an elegant dress pipe-like aesthetic, the bowl and mouthpiece separated by a generous band of sterling silver. Peterson's craftsmen spend years training under the factory's senior smiths, and the Irish marque is esteemed for its use of sterling silver. In the Irish Harp series, Peterson pays tribute to one of Ireland's most iconic symbols: the Celtic harp or cláirseach in Irish. The traditional instrument is here emblazoned on the silver accent, celebrating Peterson's Irish origins while simultaneously showcasing their superlative silverwork.-Truett Smith
