Armellini fatte a mano

Hello, I'm new to the site and a new pipe smoker. I bought a Mauro Armellini pipe that I haven't been able to find any information on. I got it at a local antique store, probably overpaid for it, but I thought it was pretty cool looking. I haven't smoked it yet, still need to clean it up, but I was wondering if $75 was too much to pay for one of these pipes. I'll post some pictures once I figure out how.
Any info, or direction to info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I couldn't attach it from my iPad, but here's a picture of it. Let me know what you think.
Trust me, it won't hurt my feeling any to tell me this pipe is terrible and I should just throw it away.
Thanks again.

That's a pretty big pipe
Yah it is! Pretty unique too in my opinion, hopefully someone can provide a little more info. I know that Mauro's daughter and nephew are running the business now. And nothing that they're selling look like this. None of the pics of Armellini's look like this that I can find.

If your pipe is in good shape you probably paid somewhere between fair and fair. Good pipes, Armellini, if you like the look. Yours is a monster.

Pipes are easy to bring up to spin with some spit, paper towels, alcohol, pipecleaners and wax - just take care to remove the stem carefully/properly so as not to break it (or the wooden shank). The rest is simple.

Very nice pipe. Here is some info on Armellini. I had never heard of them before. As for if you paid too much - I don't think so. Cavaliers are always pretty expensive, and it looks like yours is huge. In fact I think you got a pretty good deal.

Cool pipe! $75 might be a little high but is probably within the range of reason for that pipe. Hope you like it :) I've got an Armellini that I started restoring a long time ago but never finished...
