A New Ropp

Ropp Pipes was started way back by Eugène-Léon Ropp (1830 – 1907) to make cherrywood pipes in 1869.

Then probably in 1917 a workshop was acquired by the company in Saint-Claude in the Rue du Plan du Moulin 8 to start the fabrication of briar pipes although cherrywood pipe continued to be the mainstay of the company.

Unfortunately, it closed in 1991 and was taken over by Cuty-Fort Entreprises (maker of Chacom, Jeantet, Vuillard, Jean Lacroix, etc) in 1994.

Below is a briar pipe fitted with horn stem – part of its Vintage line – which I acquired recently:
