Peterson Ashford 304 Oom Paul Estate Briar Pipe, FT, Irish Estates

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.

This particular Peterson belongs to the Ashford series. Originally, the Ashford was made purely for the Italian market, but it become so desired that Peterson expanded exports to other nations, too. I can see why; the pairing of a warm, chestnut stain with a red and black swirl stem is colorful, but tasteful. On this pipe, the stain does an especially good job at bringing out the stunning flame grain patterns underneath, which almost resemble a tiger-stripe print.

The condition is great. There are perhaps one or two handling marks, but you’d have to look very closely to see them.
