A set of bag pipes, stamped P. Henderson, Glasgow


Native to Scotland the Great Highland bagpipe became widely recognised due to its use in the British military and in pipe bands throughout the world.Thought to have been first used in Scotland around 1400, the bagpipe had previously appeared in European artwork in Spain in the 13th century. Today the bagpipe enjoys widespread prominence this in part due to becoming established in the British military, this was the earliest references to bagpipes in Scotland. Throughout Europe however, other bagpipe traditions, almost universally went into decline by the late 19th and early 20th century.While widely famous for the role the bagpipes play in military and civilian pipe bands, the Great Highland bagpipe is also used for a solo virtuosic style called pìobaireachd, ceòl mòr, or simply pibroch. This set of bag pipes, stamped P. Henderson, Glasgow, sold in our Antiques and Interiors Sale on Wednesday 28th November for £950
