    London Made Peterson

    I just bought myself, courtesy of eBay, a London made Peterson Kapet shape 55 lovat. I was in two minds whether to bid because of the p-lip, I prefer the fishtail but I liked the shape and I needed to fill a space on the lovat pipe rack So now it is heading my way. Is there a way of dating these London made pipes as curious minds would like to know. Anyway here's a couple of pics from the seller. Stamped on the side is LONDON MADE over ENGLAND.

    Sweet Pete, Nigel. I like the swirled grain on the bowl and the way it flows onto the stem. Congrats!

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Really nice Pete, Nigel! Well done!

    I don't know of a way to specifically date the London Made Petes. If you find out anything, let us know.

    Many years ago at the Pibe Dan shop Carsten Andersen - later a friend of both Jesper and me - was smoking a bent P lip pipe. I asked him how it was to smoke and he said fine. Then I bought a straight P lip billiard shape 15 at the spot. But I could not smoke it so I had the stem changed which I now regret.
    Later I have had Peterson fishtail stems changed to P lip and I love them. Tom Palmer once said to me: Either you love them or you hate them.
    The lovat use to be 53 nowadays so it could be a rare one. About London Made Petersons try Petersons pipe notes, Mark Irwins web site.Fine pipe !
