I really like the bass midjoint in the chanter stock. Definitely a nice touch.

The drone tops have a style like Grainger & Campbell Pipes...the squared tuning chambers with narrow & cylindrical sections between the tops and tuning chambers.

Seems to be going that direction...bidding has stalled for bit...with high bid > $1500.

Thoughts for what maker these pipes came from?

I messaged the seller for what provenance he has for Henderson and 1895. His response was none other than his pipes may be similar to Henderson and that people are happily bidding on his auction.
