Roma Italian Bruyere


posted in: ... MORE ITALIAN | 0
Italy, 1930s

The pipe from a recently obtained pre WWII collection. The “Roma” brand is usually associated with Savinelli, therefore we can’t exclude this is an early Savinelli product. In any case it’s a great pipe for its age, very moderately and accurately smoked, rich sandblast texture promises wonderful heat-resistance. Nice finding!

​The pipe markings are “ROMA \ ITALIAN BRUYERE”. The length is 14.0 cm (5.51″), bowl’s height is 4.2 cm (1.65″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.8 cm (1.5″), internal diameter is 1.8 cm (0.71″). The depth is 3.4 cm (1.34″) and this pipe weights 34 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, aluminium air cooler. The air hole centering is a bit imperfect, but the chamber looks very accurately and very lightly smoked.
