Who made this cue? - 02-28-2018, 12:07 AM

Not sure that make of this cue. Tried to check for the weight but no normal weight . My father got this cue before I was born and want to know about it. The only letter I found is a "R" has 4 sections any info would help thanks

It might be a sampiao...they were made in Portugal.

Collectible with the billiards players they usually have carvings and ivory and MOP inlay. It’s got the wooden pin too. I just never seen one with the weight rings so it could be a 60-70s knock off of a turn of century Sampiao

With the finish blackened and the wood so light underneath...add those weight rings....I’d say knockoff

Others who may know a little more should be around shortly

I believe it is a French made Hiolle cue.
I bought my first one in 1962.
Not a Sampaio cue.
I have occasionally seen the parallelogram design in a Finck cue,
But everything else says potentially Hiolle.
The multi sections may suggest not Hiolle.

Google Hiolle, then tap on "Images" at the top of page. You will get dozens of
Hiolle cues, and may see one like yours.

Look very closely, it may have Hiolle stamped on either the shaft or butt, not always.

Nice, original cue with personal history.
You should keep it.

french made cue.
IMHO not a Hiolle but more likely an Henin Ainé cue.

Not Sampaio.

I don't think it's Hoille either.

Here is the place to look:

http://users.skynet.be/billard.billiards/sum.htm

erriep said more likely an Henin Ainé cue, and it may be that.

There are other possibilities. I have not looked for a match, so have a look, you might find it.

Edit: It looks a lot like the cue at the bottom of the "unidentified" page. http://users.skynet.be/billard.billiards/unident.htm

No clue, but a manicure is overdue for the guy holding the cue.

The cue on the bottom of that link looks to have the same inlay and almost same design as the on in the picture with it being a 3 piece butt. That would only say that it was made in Germany but after looking through some henin Aîné cues and they also look close but the one made in Germany by Boetzel looks very close. Still up in the air I'll have to do some more research yet and maybe find a value

In the shape it's in, there will not be a lot of value in it. When I first saw it I thought "$20 WalMart cue" but the shaft threads looked a bit unusual as was the shaft color.

Looks like 17 here http://users.skynet.be/billard.billiards/unident.htm
