Ropp: Vintage Smooth (441) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-12338
The "441" Billiard from Ropp is one of the French marque's larger designs, compared to the more petite shaping style seen throughout their portfolio. Most of that size, though, is lent to the bowl and chamber — the shank and stem retaining the svelte, streamlined proportions that Ropp's known for. Such shaping gives the Group 4-sized bowl even more visual prominence, drawing focus to the crisp panels that comprise its surface and making for a striking, Foursquare-inspired rendition.
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 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.-Truett Smith
