Peterson 2012 Pipe of the Year Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


Peterson pipes generally need no introduction, but just in case you’re unfamiliar: in 1876, a Latvian named Charles Peterson immigrated to Ireland and was hired making pipes in a workshop owned by Frederick and George Kapp. After rising through the ranks to become head craftsman, Peterson bought into the Kapp’s business, which was renamed, Kapp & Peterson (K&P). During this time, Peterson himself applied for several patents for pipe designs, including the world-famous Peterson’s System. Since then, Peterson has become one of the most recognizable names in pipe smoking and continues to produce high quality pipes from their headquarters in Dublin.

For their 2012 Pipe of the Year, Peterson inaugurated a wholly new shape, one that, even afterwards, would be absorbed into the seldom-seen ‘B’ shapes series: the B61. The shape was Peterson’s interpretation of the traditional ‘Diplomat’; a short, wide pot with a subtle, quarter bend and, in this instance, a sterling silver collar. This 2012 PotY wears the make’s Ebony dress finish, with an elegant black and silver theme emerging as a result of its collar and vulcanite stem.

The condition is excellent. There are one or two very minor handling marks, but the pipe has nevertheless been well preserved and cared for.
