Peterson: Ebony Spigot (D5) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-112018

The "D" line of shapes within Peterson's portfolio were originally produced for the Irish marque's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, and these designs typically embody an aesthetic more akin to Danish pipe design, forgoing Peterson's signature muscular and robust shaping style. For the "D5" Billiard, such Danish inspiration is manifested in a slightly longer, more slender shank-and-stem combination and a trimmer, softer-lined bowl. It makes for a pipe that boasts Peterson's quality but in a different style, adding diversity and variety to the marque's vast shape chart.

Along with their signature shaping style, Peterson of Dublin is renowned for their silverwork. The journey of becoming a Peterson silversmith requires years of training and personal mentorship from the factory's senior craftsmen, and the superlative results testify to such a demanding, lengthy process — each worker having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that every metal accoutrement made is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it. Peterson's Spigot line was created in 1977, after discovering an old Peterson catalog from 1906 that pictured pipes with spigot mounts, and the series is among the best at showcasing the Irish marque's signature silver treatment, fitting sterling silver around both the shank end and stem base in a spigot-mount arrangement. The construction provides further reinforcement and durability and highlights even more sterling silver than would be used for a standard military mount. Presented here in the Ebony finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to a glossy, black stain for a thoroughly classy dress pipe aesthetic.
