A Stately Peterson System Standard 312 Republic of Ireland – Coming from the Republic Era this Pete is dated from 1949 to the present. The classic Peterson’s ‘System’ was engineered with a sump for cooler smoking and the well-known P-Lip stem that redirects the air upwardly to avoid tongue burn. The grain on this Pete is eye catching with bird’s eye and swirls. To learn more about this Pete’s restoration go to this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  The Pete’s dimensions are Length: 6 9/16 inches; Height: 1 13/16 inches; Bowl depth: 1 1/2 inches; Rim diameter: 1 1/4 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 7/8 inches.

An Imperial Churchwarden of France – This classic shape is one of the most collectable and recognizable among pipes. Known today as a ‘Gandalf’ pipe, the longer stem accommodates a cooler experience. The grain on the bowl enhances the Churchwarden look very well. To learn more about this Churchwardens restoration, see this link for a fun write up: A Tale of Three Churchwardens.

A Dublin Churchwarden – This fashioned Churchwarden is mounted by a classic Dublin bowl which provides the proper attitude to complete the ensemble. Churchwardens are defined not by the bowls mounted to them but by the length of the stems which provide a cooler smoking experience while one reflects on blowing smoke rings as did Gandalf! To learn more about this Dublin Churchwarden, see this fun write up along with two other Churchwardens: A Tale of Three Church Wardens. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. The Dublin’s Length is 10 1/2 inches. SOLD – Price $65/USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An Apple Yello Bole Church Warden – An unlikely candidate to be mounted as a Churchwarden, was an unassuming Yello Bole Apple shaped bowl. Yet, it works very well! Fashioning this Churchwarden was rewarding as the bowl stepped up and looks great with beautiful swirled grain mounted on the long stem providing the steward with an exceptionally cool experience. To learn more about the Churchwarden’s creation, go to this link for a fun write up: A Tale of Three Church Wardens. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. The Dublin’s Length is 10 1/2 inches. SOLD – Price $65/USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An Amphora X-tra 724-644 of Amphora Holland Quarter Bent Bulldog – The Bulldog shape is iconic –  everyone wants at least one example in his or her collection.  This Amphora X-tra is a quarter bent Bulldog with the standard dome ring and diamond shank.  It has beautiful grain drawing attention to the dome and flowing through the entire bowl and shank.   You can learn more about the restoration of this Amphora X-tra Bulldog at this LINK.  The pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and restored, and is ready for a new steward. The Bulldog’s dimensions are: Length: 5 3/4 inches; Bowl Height: 1 1/2 inches; Chamber Depth: 1 3/16 inches; Bowl Diameter: 1 3/4 inches; Internal Chamber Diameter: 11/16 inches. SOLD – Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An Italian Import Italy Custom Shape – Few words can describe my amazement at the transformation this pipe made during its restoration.  The shape of the pipe is unique, with its flared shank and sloping, gently bent stem.  This by itself is what drew me to the pipe to add it to the collection.  But now this shape is augmented with a beautiful display of briar grain that is striking and mesmerizing to study.  I love grain patterns and this Italian Custom Shape’s grain has been set free for us to enjoy!  You can learn more about the restoration of this Italian Custom Shape at this LINK.  The pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and restored, and is ready for a new steward. The Italian Custom Shape’s dimensions are Length: 5 5/8 inches; Bowl Height: 2 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 5/8 inches SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Classic Oom Paul of L. J. Peretti of Boston – I’ve restored several of the Oom Pauls from a Lot of 10 I acquired from a seller near the home of the L. J. Peretti Co., in Boston.  I’m happy to recommission this Oom Paul from the Lot.  The grain on this stummel is amazing.  The right side of the of the bowl showcases a tight configuration of bird’s eye grain and straight grain bursting from it like a sunburst of rays.  The Oom Paul shape is classic as it hangs easily, resting on the chin as one enjoys his (or her!) favorite blend.  You can learn more about the restoration of this Peretti Oom Paul at this LINK.  The pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and restored, and is ready for a new steward.  The Oom Paul’s dimensions are Length: 6 inches; Bowl Height: 2 1/2 inches; Chamber depth: 2 1/8 inches; Rim diameter: 1 1/2 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 15/16 inches. SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


Another L. J. Peretti Oom Paul Sitter Recommissioned This is the second Peretti Oom Paul Sitter of Boston I’ve restored and this one stands out with beautiful vertical flame grain showcased around the bowl. The heel of the stummel and the shank reveal complimenting bird’s eye grain to complete the look. The deep, cylindrical bowl is classic Oom Paul that allows the pipe to hang comfortable while packed with one’s favorite blend. The fact this big guy is a Sitter, and can sit on the table while playing board or dealing the next hand is an added benefit. You can learn more about the restoration of this Peretti Oom Paul Sitter at this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. The Oom Paul Sitter’s dimensions are Length: 5 7/8 inches; Height: 2 1/8 inches; Bowl depth: 2 inches; Rim diameter: 1 3/8 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 7/8 inches.

Another of Boston’s L. J. Peretti: A Hefty Billiard Half Bent Saddle – This big boy was in rough shape when he arrived, but has cleaned up very nicely!  The Peretti Billiard fills the palm and has a solid presence.  The Billiard shape is a workhorse pipe that represents the majority of pipes in hands of stewards today.  This Peretti Billiard’s grain pattern blends larger bird’s eye swirls with lateral flame grain and catches the eye.  The gentle half bent saddle stem, perfect for reflection and reading, has a glassy reflection and sports the distinctive Peretti marking.  To learn more about this Peretti Billiard’s restoration go to this LINK.

The Billiard’s dimensions are Length: 5 7/8 inches, Height: 2 inches, Rim Diameter: 1 5/16 inches, Chamber Diameter: 1 7/8 inches, Bowl depth: 1 3/4 inches. SOLD Price $55USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Classic, Stout Peterson System Standard 313 Republic of Ireland – I enjoyed restoring this Pete and the history revealed in my research.  As a Republic Era pipe, the dating could be anywhere from 1949 to present day – yet, the sense of this pipe having some age is strong.  As a Peterson System pipe, it has the ‘sump’ engineering that was patented in the 1800s as well as the innovative, P-Lip stem, which directs the air to the upper part of the mouth, avoiding tongue bite.  The briar on this Pete turned out nicely – it has striking grain and the nickel ferule adds class.  The Peterson System Pipe was considered a workingman’s pipe and I can see why.  It has a stoutness to it.  To learn more about the Pete’s restoration go to this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  The Pete’s dimensions are Length: 5 3/8 inches; Height: 1 3/4 inches; Bowl depth: 1 1/2 inches; Rim diameter: 1 3/16 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 11/16 inches SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Striking Comoy’s Pebble Grain 3/4 Bent Modern Poker 603 – The blasted grain on this vintage Comoy’s is exceptional – oh my! Dated from the mid-70s, the Pebble Grain line of Comoy’s was a higher grade choice and this Poker does not disappoint. As a 3/4 Bent Poker, it is a classic shape and is easily placed on the table while one is enjoying friends and board games! For collectors, it is Pre-Cadogan, sports a ‘3-piece C’ on the stem and the COM is ‘Made in London England’. To learn more about this Comoy’s Poker see this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. The Sitter’s dimensions are Length: 5 1/4 inches; Height: 1 7/8 inches; Bowl depth: 1 11/16 inches; Rim diameter: 1 5/16 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 13/16 inches. SOLD Price $70USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An L. J. Peretti Oom Paul with Striking Grain ready to be added to a collection! – I acquired this Oom Paul with several other Oom Pauls (or, Hungarian) and other shapes with Boston’s L. J. Peretti Co. name in a Lot of 10.  What causes this ‘Uncle Paul’ to stand out is the striking lateral flame grain that flows through the large bowl from the shank to the front – culminating in a sprinkling of bird’s eye grain.  The Oom Paul is a popular shape with its full bent style can be added to your collection. You can read more about the restoration of this Oom Paul at this LINK.  The pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and restored, and is ready for a new steward.  The Oom Paul’s dimensions are Length: 6 inches; Bowl Height: 2 1/2 inches; Chamber depth: 2 1/8 inches; Rim diameter: 1 1/2 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 15/16 inches. SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


Another L. J. Peretti of Boston: An Oom Paul Sitter I’ve enjoyed restoring several Perettis and this Oom Paul Sitter is a good addition.  The fact that he’s a Sitter, only adds to the desirability of this classic shape.  The large bowl showcases eye-catching briar grains and provides ample room to pack one’s favorite blend for an extended time of reflection.  You can learn more about the restoration of this L. J. Peretti Oom Paul Sitter at this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  The Sitter’s dimensions are Length: 5 7/8 inches; Height: 2 1/8 inches; Bowl depth: 2 inches; Rim diameter: 1 3/8 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 7/8 inches.  SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Sculpted Gourd Calabash – This Gourd Calabash is eye catching not only because of its classic shape, but because it also showcases a sculptured design on the gourd.  For those drawn by sight, there’s plenty to survey as one enjoys his favorite blend.  The Meerschaum cup adds to the traditional Sherlock look and the fancy stem completes the pipe.  To learn more about the restoration of this Sculpted Gourd Calabash, see this LINK.  The Calabash has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  The dimensions are Length: 9 inches; Cup width: 2 ¾ inches; Cup chamber depth: 1 3/8 inches.  SOLD Price $100 + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An Italian Savinelli Oscar Aged Briar 614 – An Unexpected Find in AthensThis striking Savinelli Oscar was found in Athens, Greece, and was in rough shape but he responded well!  As a 3/4 Bent Billiard, the Oscar’s bowl is a showcase of briar grain movement starting with a briar knot on the heel of the bowl, radiating upward toward the rim with lateral, feather-like grain, which then culminates in the upper regions with a plethora of bird’s eye grain.  You can learn more about the Savinelli Oscar’s restoration at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  The Oscar’s dimensions are Length: 5 1/4 inches; Height: 2 inches; Bowl depth: 1 11/6 inches; Rim diameter: 1 1/4 inches; Internal Chamber diameter: 13/16 inches.  SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

      I wish I did. I have several Peretti pipes in the “Help me!” Basket but I’m in the US now and my work table is back in Bulgaria. It will be next February before I could get to it. I have several Oom Paul’s, a half bent Billiard and an Extra large straight Billiard available to restore but not until February! You can see these pipes pictured on my restoration of a Large Full Egg from that same Peretti lot (https://thepipesteward.com/2017/08/10/revitalizing-a-distinctive-l-j-peretti-of-boston-large-full-bent-egg/). Let me know if you can wait!
