Peterson: Irish Harp Sandblasted (B5) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-101565
Peterson's "B" series of pipes originated around 1998 and presents rather unique shapes within the Irish marque's portfolio. A number of these designs began as special collections, with overflowing stock given a "B" designation until being exhausted, while others have since become standards of Peterson's shape chart. The "B5" is one such standard, and like most other "B" pieces, it combines elements of other shapes for a unique, hybrid form. It shares much in common with the classic bent Bulldog — a diamond shank and characteristic beadline, below which the bowl tapers toward the heel — however, the bowl's silhouette resembles an Acorn, with the waistline high-set and the rim slightly rounded compared to the Bulldog's usually crisp taper. A subtle bend is lent to the stem, and when combined with the angled transition, it balances out the robust proportions of the stummel, typical of Peterson's signature muscular shaping cues.
Marked by a concise sandblast, dark walnut stain, and acrylic stem to match, the Irish Harp line from Peterson poses an elegant 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
