French Estates: Ropp Vintage Superior Smooth Billiard Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-003-7909

The "29" shape from Ropp tows the line between the classic Billiard and Liverpool shapes — the shank being slightly longer than is typical of a traditional Billiard, yet not quite as elongated as a Liverpool's and the stem not abbreviated enough. As such, it cuts a striking, clean-lined silhouette as the extra-length of tapered stem leads into the sleek stretch of shank. Classically poised and fitting into Ropp's more diminutive size conventions, it's a perfect Billiard variant that caters to lovers of pipe chart standards.

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 warm chestnut stain 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.
