This small compact (or better to say – “pocket”) billiard has recently celebrated its century. And not only the stem of a retro design and an unusual bone stinger tells about it. Except the name of the maker and the series, there are no other markings on the pipe, in particular a designation of the manufacturing country (COM). Such situation was in 1910-15, when the Peterson patent has already expired, but the stamp “Made in Ireland” wasn’t applied yet. A rarity!
The pipe markings are “PETERSON \ DE LUXE”. The length is 11.1 cm (4.37″), bowl’s height is 3.5 cm (1.38″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.1 cm (1.22″), internal diameter is 1.6 cm (0.63″). The depth is 2.8 cm (1.1″) and this pipe weights 20 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, bone stinger.
