If you have followed Anne Julie from the 1980ies you are aware that she became famous for her creativity, spirit and her pipes called lady leg. In the cold and windy winter on the Danish Island Læsø, where she lives, she does not lose her creativity and made not the lady leg, but the lady with the footstool. She calls this piece of art Optimism. The lady has the signature rough carved finish in a black and red stain. The stem (left leg) is in a lipstick red color. The lady can sit on the two miniature silk pillows resting her leg on the red footstool. The box is fully decorated with Anne Julies art. The briar used is from a private stock of super old aged Corsican briar. All is 100% handmade by Anne Julie and the lady is naturally smokable.


This is a set of art, marvellous creativity and it shows a passion for life which is exactly what Anne Julie is about, Is she the best pipemaker in the world? Most likely not but she surely is one of a kind.


The pipe is made here in 2020, which is the year where Anne Julie will become 80 years. We are aware its not polite to mention the age of a lady, but we think it's so cool she is still in the top of her game and present the world of pipes something you don't see every day. The lady with footstool is a perfect example on what the world of pipes gain with having Anne Julie on board.
