Brand created by Eugène-Léon Ropp (1830 - 1907) and continued throughout 3 generations. "GBA Synergie" run by Bernard Amiel (†2008) bought back Ropp in 1988 and owned it until 1991.

The company was taken over by Cuty-Fort Entreprises (Chacom, Vuillard, Jean Lacroix...) in 1994.

Ropp Bussang

S G D G (Sans Garantie Du Gouvernement)

Bussang is the name of the village in the Vosges montains (N-E France) where Eugène-Léon Ropp (1830 - †1907) established his very first workshop. The pipe above may be from this early period (1870-1893) because of:

  • The Bussang stamping
  • The horn mouthpiece
  • The round lip
