It is probably fair to say that Savinelli is Italy’s most famous pipe brand. Founded in Milan in 1876 by Achille Savinelli, the brand has continuously offered high quality pipes for nearly 150 years. Though various Savinelli lines have come and gone over the years, the brand has always been notable for putting out classically styled pipes with a distinctly Italian twist.

Savinelli’s Capri series were some of the earliest pipes offered by the make, and have been in and out of production throughout the make’s lifetime, though they were last made at least a decade ago. They feature the quintessentially Italian, pebble-dash rustication motif found across the nation’s great makes – Castello’s Sea Rock, Caminetto’s Business, Radice’s Rind, and so on. This Capri Root Briar wears a dark brown, near-black stain over its rocky stummel, and is rendered in what is today known as the “904KS” shape. Why is this one a “9004” and not a 904KS? Because it was made prior to the 1970s, when Savinelli moved to a three-digit numbering system. This should prick the ears of collectors, as should the vulcanite stem, which is rarely used on modern Savinellis, and the pipe’s original inner tube, highly reminiscent of the one made famous by Dunhill.

The condition is great. There’s a little bit of fading to the finish, but overall this pipe has been remarkably preserved.
