1920’s Silver and Ivory Robertson bagpipes

1920’s Vintage ebony wood silver and ivory.

Ivory mounts and ring caps.  Silver slides and ferrels added back in 2007 by Bagpipe Silver Company out of Houston, Texas.

Mouth piece bulb made from an old ivory cue ball about 5 years ago by Mark Cushing out of New York.

Blow pipe is original and has been bored to a larger opening and brass lined.

Asking $3800 US for sticks and stocks.

See attached photo and more are available upon request.

These pipes have a beautiful bold sound.

Played in Pro solos and grade 1 band.  Great remarks.

My original tutor’s, who has since passed, bagpipes were sold to me so there is a sentimental value to his Lawries.

I just want these pipes played.

There is some cracks both tenor tops and they are NOT through.  It is only cosmetic.

I was going to have them repaired professionally before the Lawries became available to me.

Thanks,

Chris Lorince
