Peterson Aran 338 Smooth Bent Billiard Estate Briar Pipe, P-lip, Irish Estates [SOLD]

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.

Debuting in 1965, and taking its name from a collection of small islands off the coast of County Galway, the Aran has been a staple in Peterson production for decades. This particular Aran is from the nickel-mounted sub-series, wearing a silvery collar that lends an extra touch of elegance to the design. It also has some quite remarkable grain, with bird’s-eye on each side of the bowl joined by cross-grain at its aft and fore.

The condition is near-mint. I don’t note anything that bears mentioning as regards any issues, but please consult the pictures for yourself, just in case I’ve missed anything.
