Peterson 999 Silver Spigot 'Special'.

The Peterson 999 Rhodesian shape is one of their most popular pipe shapes amongst Peterson fans.
When given a silver enhancement as in the silver spigot form, it is truly outstanding.
Her in the UK,we are fortunate to be given the opportunity to purchase some superb 'special' pipes, which Peterson create each year for exhibition at Industry Trade Shows.

Recently I was fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to purchase one of these unique 'special' one off pipes. It is a natural coloured 999 shape Silver spigot with a P-lip stem. It is enhanced by the wonderful Celtic scroll engraving to the silver work. A bonus here is the amazing birds-eye on the bowl.

Once again, I present for the Blog followers delectation and delight another photo show of this latest inmate of the Sandpiper collection.

  2. Beautiful pipe indeed and a rare bird at that! Sadly it's becoming increasingly difficult to find a Peterson spigot with a P-Lip.
