Ireland, 1972

“While the Premier System stamp was formally announced in our 1945 catalogue, the design itself dates to our original System grading system, where it was known simply as the Second Grade, a higher-tiered System pipe meant to bridge the gap between our entry-level System and Deluxe models. … the Premier System pipe incorporates all of Charles Peterson’s patented System engineering, elevated through the use of select-quality bowls and fitments of semi-precious metals. Perfect for the Peterson enthusiast looking to upgrade their collection of System pipes” (c) Peterson site.
