A pipe from the luxury 7-pipes series initiated by Peterson’s in 1987 to honour Sir Arthur Conan Doyle characters: Sherlock Holmes Original, Watson, Squire, Professor, Deerstalker, Baskerville and Baker Street. Soon after the “Original” series success an additional “The Return of Sherlock Holmes” collection was launched with the 7 additional shapes: The Mycroft, Hudson, Strand, Rathbone, Lestrade, Hansom, and the Milverton.
