French Estates: Ropp Vintage Superior Smooth Apple Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-003-7908

Ropp's shaping style caters to classic shapes, often rendered in lightweight proportions and sleek style. Such an aesthetic suits this Apple quite well — the arrow straight, slightly elongated shank-and-stem combination leading into the plump, squat bowl up front. The sleek profile accentuates the bowl's curves while still keeping the form trim for comfortable clenching and easy pocketing.

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 Superior piece is commended further, having been fashioned from select-quality, fill-free briar and is here dressed in a smooth, natural finish. It's fitted with a stem of genuine horn, hearkening back to the style of mouthpieces from the early 1900s and accentuating the vintage motif to make for a thoroughly retro aesthetic.
