Mauro Armellini Europa Smooth Cavalier Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


Armellini is something of a hidden gem in the world of Italian pipe-making. It is also a make that deserves more recognition, given the singular contributions of its namesake, Mauro Armellini, to Italian pipe history. Mauro himself began his pipe-making career at the Rossi factory in the 1960s, before it was acquired by Savinelli. Later, Mauro worked for Savinelli, where he played an instrumental role in developing many of its iconic rustication styles, such as the coveted Corallo finish. After leaving Savinelli, Mauro created his own make, Mauro Armellini. In his workshop in Barasso, in northern Italy, he crafted these pipes alongside his four daughters. After Mauro passed in 2004, his daughter Wilma took the reins of the Armellini workshop, which continues to produce hand made pipes in both traditional and modern freehand styles.

The cavalier is not an easy shape to make. It is an even harder shape to make well. This pipe from Mauro Armellini is, thankfully, a well made cavalier – and a true cavalier at that. With its tall stature and removable foot, the pipe is well suited for sipping and for easy cleaning afterwards, and has some nice straight and cross grain on its briar component.

The condition is very good. The bowl has some minor handling marks and scratches on its exterior, but these are superficial and will not affect the smoking properties of the pipe.
