About this object
Set of bagpipes in a brown suede leather carrying bag with a zip close and a plaited handle. The pipes have a red corduroy bag and ebony drones with silver and ivory trim connected by a red cord. The chanter is in a case made of two halves of ebony tied together with string. The ebony on the chanter is carved with Maori and Celtic style motifs. The silver on the chanter is engraved with a Celtic pattern. The ivory on the chanter is similarly engraved. The patterns on the pipes were carved by Mr Delwyn McFarlane Grant (grandson of Peter Grant of "Gowrie", Outram). The pipe comes with various accessories including a bottle of almond oil, a chamois cloth, a metal rod with lint on the end for cleaning the bore of the chanter, spare pieces for the chanter including a carved ivory mouthpiece stored in a blue cardboard box and some black thread.
