The Peterson Patent Catalogue above is from around 1898.
As can be seen from the illustrated cover, there are two figurative pipes depicted.
I have often admired the Lion head in particular and wondered if I would ever be fortunate enough to eventually find and acquire one.
Well wishes do come true,please meet my latest acquisition to the Sandpiper Peterson Pipe Museum. A Meerschaum version, which is even better in the 'flesh', a real stunner . Hallmarked for 1898 and in museum condition.
