Any body have any information on a Lucca pipe.  I've included a picture of the markings.  I have spent days looking the internet over to no avail.

Well...that was easy. Took ten seconds. Um, you WERE using google...right?

Stamping is “Lucca...Rustica...made in Italy” so...Luca is a line made by Rossi. What I would call a Value Line. They seem to be available pretty much all over, at many online vendors.

Rossi blurb...”Rossi Free Rustic Pipes are unique, hand-shaped designs that will be eye catching to all. The  briar comes in several shapes in either dark brown or brown rustication, with an acrylic stem.”

The pipes:

The tobacco (which I assume is tied to the Rossi line...but maybe not)...

Thanks. I found that info on SP.com early in my search, but nothing identifies my Lucca as made by Rossi or Savinelli. I will email Savinelli to see what they say. The Lucca tobacco is a North Carolina product, and like you I don't know if it's associated with Savinelli. Again thanks.

I think I saw somewhere that the tobacco was handled through Laudisi (based in S.C.).


And re your comment: “...nothing identifies my Lucca as made by Rossi...”

If you searched high and low for weeks and came up only with the same ‘Lucca by Rossi’ thing that I found in a minute or two...then one would think that was it. I mean, how many Lucca’s could there BE out there...if the one comes right up and is the only one?

But this on the Milan Tobacco site seems to be pretty conclusive...
