HIDDEN TREASURE!

Hidden Treasure.

I recently had some luck on e-bay,when spotting this fine example of a Peterson's Patent. It comes with it's original factory fitted case, and features a rare factory amber stem. The amber is in perfect condition and still has it's bone fitting on the inboard side of the stem. It is a 1901 birth date, having been lightly smoked and well cared for it is in beautiful condition. Both briar and amber are in excellent condition. A group 4 sized pipe, the dimensions are as follows: The overall length is 5-1/2 inches, the bowl height is 1-3/4 inches and the inside diameter of the bowl is 3/4 of an inch. The stamping is very clear, and complete, it reads as follows: The briar is marked Peterson's Patent, and the silver carries the Dublin Hallmarks for 1901-2' K&P and Peterson's Patent. I consider this a fine historic piece, of Museum quality.

  4. A beauty! Enjoy!

    I also had seen this pipe on ebay and had it on my watch list, but the bidding got a but too spendy for me.

    Glad you got it.
