Is this a Sampaio Pool Cue?

Is this a Sampaio Pool Cue?

Can anyone conform if this is a Sampaio cue?

Bought this at an auction and know very little about it. It is hand-carved.

    I don't think it's a Sampaio pool cue.

    It would typically have a stamp (i.e. an indentation into the wood) with the Sampaio name. I don't see that in your photos and would assume that you would have mentioned it if it was there. It would usually be on the shaft (or on the forearm very close to the joint) and would look like these below:




    Additionally, the inlay pattern and detail differs from that typical of Sampaio cues.

    It is most likely an inexpensive import cue from the 1970s, from somewhere like Taiwan, Mexico, and the Philippines. They were made from low-quality materials which are not generally suitable for use in the construction of high-performance pool cues.
