Danish Estates: Anne Julie Smooth Billiard Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-32266

Though originally introduced to the world of pipe making through her marriage to Poul Rasmussen, Anne Julie, over time, has become a titan of the craft in her own right. Not only are her pipes greatly admired for their elegant shaping and gorgeous presentation, but she has also contributed a wealth of guidance to young, upstart carvers. Most notably, Anne Julie was the first to recognize the talent of a young Tom Eltang, offering him an apprenticeship in her personal workshop. This Billiard is a striking reminder of Julie's incredible talent.

In keeping with Julie's typical shaping style, this Billiard boasts a sleek, streamlined appearance that foregoes any unnecessary accoutrements or pronounced flourishes, instead opting for a more subdued and understated elegance. Refined and lightweight, this piece features a pert, upright bowl that stands atop a plump heel and displays a subtle taper from base to rim. Said bowl is slightly canted, a shaping cue which imbues the entire composition with a subtle dynamism in profile. A slender shank-and-stem arrangement brings up the rear and keeps the overall form looking well-balanced in profile. A warm, traditional smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights a fetching display of flame grain around the bowl.
