French Estates: Ropp Vintage Sandblasted (K77) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-003-5085
In overall height and length, this isn't a particularly large Billiard from Ropp. Regarding relative proportions, though, the "K77" displays a Stack-like disposition — the tall, upright bowl garnering much of the visual weight thanks to the slender shank and streamlined stem. A classic take on the shape chart standard, it exemplifies Ropp's penchant for svelte, French-styled pieces. Unsmoked.
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
