Some recent acquisitions.

My collecting of Peterson Pipe paraphernalia has recently become somewhat prolific and eclectic,as can be seen in the accompanying photo.
My good friend Chuck Wright identified a rather unique Peterson item on e-bay recently.It was listed as an Oak wood musical Peterson Pipe Tool  box. It duly arrived here to the 'Pete Bog' and was identified as a musical cigarette or cigar box, which has been converted to a small tool box. It has the Peterson marks on the base and plays the old Scot's tune 'The Sky Boat Song'. It has a clockwork mechanism.
I am a sucker for the XL02 shape,so when I spotted this nice 'Red' Sterling silver example I just had to have it,nice addition to my smoking rotation!
Next was a rare opportunity to acquire a pipe knife which I have always lusted after, the French masterpiece Laguiole.There are not too many for sale these days.
I was fortunate to spot this one when it came up for sale on the Alpascia site.It was 1 of 3, they have all been sold within the week!


  1. ah, you did got that box, great! I was on it as well, always good to see it in a fellow collector's house!

  2. It now has a good home Phil.
