Satisfying the collector's lust for possession!
Early last year Gary Malmberg,the President of the Sacramento pipe club gave a talk to the members of the Golden Gate Pipe club. He brought along several significant old Pete's from his extensive collection. One of these was a really interesting one, a large 1912 Meerschaum figural Mastiff Dog carving. From the photos, I reckoned that the pipe was, in all probability one of the finest Peterson Meerschaum carvings that I had ever seen. As a collector of Peterson's my lust was unleashed!
Over the last few months I have purchased several older Pete's from Gary's wonderful collection.
I made it known to him that I was very interested in the Meerschaum Mastiff Dog figural pipe which he had shown earlier in the year and asked if he would consider a mutually beneficial exchange to allow me to acquire this outstanding pipe. Well I am very pleased to say that I am now the proud custodian of this quite exceptional and historically significant pipe.
Just arrived, I am proud to introduce the latest addition to The Sandpiper Peterson Museum collection!
Thank you Gary.
