Clay Pete's ~ Fact or Fiction

Peterson made clay pipes from about 1895 to ca 1910 and for a very short period during WWII. I believe these were made in their London factory.

These are very hard to find.

Happy Saint Patty's Day!

I think it was no coincidence that will driving to work early this morning enjoying my pipe- Peterson Wicklow- that I remembered it was Saint Patricks Day.

Now usually I smoke a Pete on this day, and usually a racing green dublin, but today's Pipe was great.

What are the odds that the Pete would come in to play on this day? *

* Actually they are fairly high since the proportion of Petes in my Rotation is fairly high only being edged out by my selfmades which are special to me.

Happy Saint Patricks Day!

on fills. . . (shhh)

Subject: Follow-up response received this morning (regarding fills):

Thank you for your reply of 5th February.

By way of background, we have hundreds of different pipe shapes and from say 100 pieces of shapes, say 03, 3-5 pieces would be deemed "fill free". These special pieces would then be finished with the following series: Straight Grains Supremes - Silver and Gold Mounted

In addition the following series could have small root marks but no putty, namely :- De Luxe System De Luxe Classic Army Spigot Celtic Natural Rosslare Natural Grafton Hinged Lip Cap Natural Silver Caps

I trust the above information is of some help and wish you many hours of smoking pleasure.

Kind regards,

Peterson of Dublin
