"Scotland is internationally known for its traditional music, which remained vibrant throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, when many traditional forms worldwide lost popularity to pop music...The earliest mention of bagpipes in Scotland dates to the 15th century although they are believed to have been introduced to Britain by the Roman armies. The Great Highland Bagpipe was originally associated with both hereditary piping families and professional pipers to various clan chiefs; later, pipes were adopted for use in other venues, including military marching".
This is an interesting John O' Groats 3" high pewter-colored piper on serpentine rock. It is marked 'Jacken. Genuine Scottish Serpentine. The Stone House. Avoch, Ross-Shire'. It is in very good condition with some foxing on the bottom label.
