Scott Catalogue No. 2234

Here's a nice drawing of a French Cabrette, with its bellows partially visible in the background. Unfortunately this is a small stamp and was issued "pre-cancelled" - which leaves a mess of black lines over the lower part of the pipe; otherwise it is one of the more accurate bagpipe depictions on any stamp. The Cabrette is represented on our "Bagpipes of the World" CD album, and can be seen in detail on this site at this location (use your browser's "back" button to return here).
