Product Description

Peterson Emerald Slightly Bent Apple

Description, Markings, Measurements:

Peterson is an interesting brand. While many pipe collectors have any number of brands in their racks, there are a whole lot of smokers who are die-hard Peterson fans. By this, I don't mean they have a couple Petersons; I mean they smoke Petersons, and that's that. Not interested in changing, not interested in the latest and greatest, take your Dunhill and....well, you get the point.

This particular Peterson is a smooth Emerald shape 408, which is a 1/8th bent apple.  While the pipe isn't perfect, it isn't an arm-and-a-leg, either.  The Emerald line was discontinued awhile back; at the time they were a middle-of-the-road Petersons that offered decently grained smooth pipes for not a lot of dough.  Same holds true today on the estate market.  The grain is really nice, actually, with flame on both left and right (as well as the back wall), and a sea of birdseye on the bottom of the bowl.  It does not appear to have fills, but I am sure there has to be one or two carefully tucked away (this is, after all, just an emerald.)

Markings are a touch weak and read: PETERSON'S (over) EMERALD, 408.  All but the "S" in PETERSONS are readable, and while most nomenclature is deep enough, it's obvious it's been buffed.  There are no more crisp edges, and some letters are a touch weak.  The stem has an impressed white-tone "P", visible but weak.




Length: 5.85"
Bowl width: 1.73"
Bowl Height: 1.71"
Chamber dimensions: .82" across, 1.44" deep
Weight: 52 grams


8 out of 10.  There are issues:  First the nomenclature is as described above; we will call it "buffed but 90% readable".  The bowl has a bit of raised grain from buffing, along with a few good-sized dings on the left bottom side of the bowl and a handful of handling marks scattered about elsewhere.  The rim shows some moderate darkening from tar/smoking along with a number of shallow, buffed-over knock marks all around the rim.  The stem is original with no toothmarks, but the "p" is faded a little.  There are surprisingly no fills that I can find (although it's possible these old eyes just don't see them due to being well hidden and/or small).  All cleaned up and ready to go.  Not perfect, but not $100 either.
