Ropp: Vintage Smooth (407)
Product Number: 002-598-1428
With a stretched stem, streamlined profile, and petite bowl, the "407" paneled Tomato fits well into Ropp's penchant for more diminutive pipes. Six crisp panels define the bowl, contrasting its curvaceous profile with rigid lines. It makes for an architectural appeal that combines strikingly with the sleek shank and stem for an elegant appeal that recalls pipes from old-school French and English catalogs.
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 smooth, auburn 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.-Truett Smith
