French Estates: Ropp Sandblasted Vintage (29C)
Product Number: 004-003-4931
Out of all the classic Billiard variants, the Liverpool boasts one of the sleekest profiles — the round shank keeps the proportions well-balanced and the use of a tapered stem compared to, say, the Lovat's saddle version accentuates the crisp, arrow-straight lines of the shank. This Ropp "29C" rendition showcases that streamlined nature handsomely, the bowl poised upright at the end of a svelte, tapering shank and stem combination. The classic French marque is known for its conservatively sized iterations of shape chart standards, and this piece testifies to that timeless aesthetic.
Sourced from old stummels found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory, Ropp's Vintage line presents old-school, classic designs that were turned decades ago but never finished. This piece is dressed in a dark-stained sandblast and fitted with a stem of genuine horn, hearkening back to the style of mouthpieces from the early 1900s. It accentuates the vintage motif, making for a thoroughly retro aesthetic.-Truett Smith
