Peterson: Speciality Silver Mounted Army Terracotta Tankard (P-Lip)

Product Number: 002-172-17567

Exclusive to Smokingpipes Europe and Peterson's Nassau St. store, Peterson's sturdy but lightweight Tankard is available boasting an army mount of sterling silver from Peterson's world renowned silversmiths.

First seen in Peterson's 1945 catalogue, the Irish marque introduced four Speciality shapes: the Barrel, Tankard, Calabash, and Belgique. Forgoing Peterson's conventional stamping and shaping cues, each design instead receives a name rather than a shape number, and the whole lineup is united by a slender, petite disposition — a stark contrast to the robust, muscular aesthetic that dominates the Irish firm's portfolio.

Sometimes ornamented by nickel, sometimes by gleaming silver, each of Peterson's Specialty line is usually constructed with a traditional mortise and tenon arrangement. These limited edition pieces instead utilise a metal cap around the shank end and a stem devoid of tenon — the tapered base of the stem fitting directly into the mortise, simultaneously reinforcing the briar and ensuring a snug fit unaffected by varying temperatures or years of wear.
