Closed ferrules would say Lawrie but I am no expert (far from!), and general aspect Glasgow style (but difficult to say with a photo); original and simple combing certainly but not uncommon.

My two (very light) cents.

Looks like ABW

The only combing pattern I've seen that resembles that is Lawrie, both on some pics on Gord MacDonald's site and on my dad's Glencoe pipes (Glencoe apparently being a brand by an ex-Lawrie turner after moving to Canada). This is at least consistent with the closed and beaded ferrules.

I had a Grainger and Campbell set with that style of combing, but the ferrules say Lawrie.

What's funny is that my dad had a set of Grainger and Campbell's until he found the maker's stamp in the cord guide that said Glencoe.

Don't believe they are Glencoes. Combing not intricate enough. You might look in the cord channels.

I will clarify: my guess is they are Lawrie's.

I've had a sugestion that they may be Reid? but Lawrie sounds likely.
