A “pre republic” era collectable Peterson pipe made most likely between 1945 and 1949, when the manufacturer returned old stamping “MADE IN IRELAND” on pipes. A pleasant lightweight bent with a deep distinct blast finish!

External diameter of the bowl is 3.0 cm (1.18″), internal diameter is 1.7 cm (0.67″). The depth is 3.4 cm (1.34″) and this pipe weights 25 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem (slightly patched), aluminium stinger. The chamber has been protected with a break-in coat.
