Rob Roy McGregor
A grand pipe tamper reproduced from a antique tamper made in England. Here represented in pewter is Scottish hero, Rob Roy McGregor (1670-1734). He was a soldier alongside his father and brother at the age of eighteen. He was a farmer, whose respect for the Highland way of life won him a place in the legend of the country. This figure was carved so that it is exactly the same on both sides. Rob Roy stands atop the tamp foot like a gladiator with his broad sword drawn and his targe on his arm. Under is feet is a banner that reads Rob Roy. You can even make out the feather in his bonnet and his plaid blowing in the wind. This is a very nice hefty tamper to hold in your fingers and is balanced in its proportions. The pipe tamper stands 2 and 5/8 inches high including the base. Good base size for most pipes.
