Peterson Makers Edition 2018 Spigot Pipes:
The most exciting and prestigious creations to ever come out of the Peterson factory!!
These pipes have created a real buzz in the pipe world as rumours started circulating in early 2017 that Peterson had discovered some pre World War II Amber stems hidden in an untouched corner of the Peterson factory. We can only imagine the beaming face of the Peterson employee who literally struck Gold when they came across these gems. I think it’s fair to say their name will be in lights as employee of the century.
The discovery was accompanied with the original paperwork which accurately dates these stems to 1939 making them a genuine piece manufacturing history.
Throughout 2017 we have been inundated with requests from avid Peterson fans as to what was happening with these Stems and when they can get their hands on one of these prized creations for their collections. Well with great pride we can finally announce that they have been used to make some high grade Silver Spigots and Peterson fans are already falling over themselves to get their hands on one.
Peterson have selected some of the highest grade of bowls that we have seen for a while which might explain the distinct lack of Premier system pipes available for the last couple of years.
They have remarkably few flaws and absolutely no filler with some really stunning grain patterns on every one we have set eyes upon to date. They are finished in Peterson’s signature brown stain. This has a wonderful glow which highlights the stunning grain pattern as well as emphasising the beauty of the Amber stem.
The pipe is finished with Peterson’s hallmarked Sterling Silver band and silver mounts on both stems
Antique Amber Stem:
Amber is a highly prized, prestigious gem stone with remarkable colouration and character. It was a popular material for pipe stems in the 19th century before the price made it unviable and pipe makers moved over to Vulcanite and Acrylic stems. It cannot be manipulated like modern materials so each stem has been hand shaped which is an almost unimaginable, labour intensive process. From start to finish these pipes have been 70 years in the making!
Amber is beautiful but comes with a high price tag and can be brittle so should not be gripped tight with the teeth.
Peterson have made these pipes with the intention of them being enjoyed daily, not just to go in collectors cabinets. They have therefore included an Acrylic fishtail stem for daily use.
The P.lip is a unique mouthpiece designed to greatly enhance the smokers experience. The lip is shaped to fit the mouth more comfortably with the tongue pressed under the lip. The smoke exits on the top of the lip, which significantly reduces tongue bite from even the most bitter smoking tobacco’s.
These are probably the most limited edition pipes that will ever come out of the Peterson factory. Only 10 were issued to the world market and when the Amber stock has run out it will not be coming back making these the most Exclusive Peterson pipes of all time.
