All of your Castello pipes look really elegant. I hope I have my own someday.
I like particularly those small ”mini” pipes. I am occasional smoker and thats why small chanber piper are my main interest.
How much do those miniatyre pipes weight?

I just picked up this rather Danish looking estate Old Antiquari from Smokingpipes. I have never seen this nomenclature before. There is no K markings and there is a V with a big asterisk next to it. Has anyone seen this before? The V could stand for the Agide shop?

It might be a pipe from the Lorenzi pipe shop in Milan that was returned to Castello when it closed and resold by Agide.

I've seen Dave's collection of Castellos and they are truly amazing. And he can tell you the story behind each one. I think only Chuck Rio has a finer collection and he, of course passed this year.
