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.
