Many thanks, will
I wish I could; I have several unstamped 19th-century chanters that I cannot attribute. The single scribe line on the bulb is unusual, I would need to browse through a lot of pictures for a check of a stamped chanter with similar details. By the way, have you checked for a stamp against a strong light, or bright sunlight? Some stamps are virtually invisible. Check very carefully all the long from top to sole.
