ROPP Spira Brevete S12

posted in: ROPP | 0
France, 1950-60

A genius detective, Mr Sherlock Holmes is traditionally associated with Peterson pipes, no matter that there’s no clear proof of that. It’s already a standard human perception. In such a case his famous colleague from another side of the Channel, Jules Magrait should be associated with Ropp pipes the most probably. And that’s absolutely reasonable, during many years since the end of the XIX century “Ropp” was a synonym to “French smoking pipe”.

A lightweight and elegant pipe with the unique finish: highly fashionable at those years neat carving brought to the French perfection!

​The pipe markings are “SPIRA \ BREVETE”, “(ROPP)’, “S12”. The length is 14.8 cm (5.83″), bowl’s height is 4.0 cm (1.57″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.2 cm (1.26″), internal diameter is 1.9 cm (0.75″). The depth is 3.2 cm (1.26″) and this pipe weights 30 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, patented aluminium stinger.
