French Estates: Ropp Vintage Sandblasted (275PL) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-003-7667
The "275" design is one of Ropp's classic Billiard renditions, offering sleek proportions and an overall classic demeanor. The "275PL" version maintains those characteristics but features a paneled bowl and a significantly elongated stem. Such variations add a sense of architectural structure in hand while also accentuating the stummel's already svelte lines, aptly fulfilling the storied French marque's reputation for streamlined, elegant, and lightweight interpretations of shape-chart classic.
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 sandblasted 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
