Hello Everyone.

Does anyone want to speculate about the identity of my grandfather's pipe.
I'm thinking a bent egg or apple (Peterson maybe?). I would like to acquire one like it to honor his memory.

Info on photo: Canada circa 1913.
He's a very young man on the Saskatoon homestead.

Thanks

That's certainly in the Peterson style. Not sure which model though.


Cheers,

RR

Petersen and WDC (William Demuth Co.) both made pipes that looked like your granddads. I have a Pete bent apple, a Mark Twain, and a WDC bent billiard that look much like the one in your picture. cheers FTRPLT

My money's on a Wellington (WDC). Side by side shotgun too! Great photo!

Looks like a Pete 69 to me. It looks a bit more tapered going up to the rim though.

Could be slight variance in styling from a different era. I'd bet on its being a Pete if the choice was only that or Wellington. Never seen a Wellington without that flare thing on the stem.
