The Peterson "Old English Collection"

The Peterson "Old English Collection".

The old English Collection featured a set of 12 pipes, recreated using original designs from the 1930s and 1940s. Each pipe is handmade and mounted with gold-plated sterling silver bands.

I remember coming across one of these handsome desirable boxed sets several years ago, on a well known German Pipe site.I was mightily impressed with the quality and variety of pipe shapes.However the asking price was beyond my pipe budget at the time.I very rarely saw any further reference to them after that.
However there had been recent discussion on the Smokers Forum in regard to the series, which prompted me to go hunting for any,well I managed to strike gold on my favourite Italian site Alpascia.Here is a brand new 265 billiard,which is currently making its way to me.
