An exciting discovery for Savinelli collectors: the crowned serpent logo was only stamped on Savinelli Rock Grain and some of the Savinelli Hand Made (Autograph) freehands. Although this pipe has no shape number, the rich and distinctive rustication is reminiscent of some pre-1970 Savinelli products. While the logo has faded slightly, it is still clearly visible.
