Time Travel

Here is a little stunner from the past, a Cased Gold Amber stem 1901 Patent.
It is in remarkable condition,given it's age.The briar is a marvellous dark walnut colour which seems to be the norm for this period.All the hallmarks are clear and crisp which would indicate very careful use.The case is pristine.
The Amber stem contrasts well with the dark briar and the luxurious gold band.
I feel deeply privileged to hold this little time capsule, which is a wonderful example of the golden period of Peterson craftsmanship.
