The queen is back! After two years waiting we finally have a new batch of pipes from one of the prides of Denmark: Manduela. After the loss of Poul Ilsted (her teacher and mentor) she has spent a lot of time on sorting out his estate, but now she finally has time to make her wonderful pipes!
If one can talk about a signature shape from Manduela it must be this facet bulldog. The design is clearly inspired by her many years with Poul Ilsted and this one is just unbelievable. Superb grain, sharp lines and decoration of black ebonite and cow bone. The stem is handmade of the rare Danish made cultural amber.
