Ropp: Vintage Smooth (29P) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-14589
Out of all the classic Billiard variants, the Liverpool boasts one of the sleekest profiles — the round shank keeps the proportions well-balanced and the use of a tapered stem compared to, say, the Lovat's saddle version accentuates the crisp, arrow-straight lines of the shank. This Ropp "29P" rendition is a paneled version of the French marque's standard "29C" Liverpool. It showcases the design's streamlined nature handsomely, the paneled bowl poised upright at the end of a svelte shank-and-stem combination. The classic French marque is known for its conservatively sized iterations of shape-chart standards, and this piece testifies to that timeless aesthetic but with the creative addition of structure facets along the bowl.
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
