My first attempt at restoring a pipe

After seeing quite a bit written and discussed about restoring estate pipes (a term I'd never even heard until about a month ago) I thought that I'd keep a look out on eBay and pick up something I liked the look of without breaking the bank. Whilst I waited for the specimen pipe to appear I also researched quite a bit about different techniques and the do's and (probably more importantly) the don'ts.

So a pipe appeared on eBay that appeared to fit the bill, so I bid and won for the grand total price of £15 ($21 US). The pipe was intact with no cracks on the bowl but was extremely heavily caked following years of use along with a bit of damage to the end of the stem. It is a Lorenzo pipe and I believe the name is Alpine, however the last letter after n is on a dark part of the bowl design which makes it unreadable.
