Ropp: Vintage Sandblasted (188) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-13680
Similar to the Stack featured in Ropp's Vintage Stout series, this "188" design is one of the most bold and striking shapes within the French marque's portfolio. It provides one of the deepest chambers out of all Ropp pipes, which are often rendered in more petite proportions. Shape-wise, while dramatic of proportions and rather muscular through the shank, the design remains classic, per Ropp's conventional shaping cues, with the bowl tilted forward slightly to balance out the relationship between height and length.
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-stained sandblast 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
