~ Stamp No. 39: Soviet Union ~
Scott Catalogue No. 5930

This is the second of a set of three stamps that depicts scarce bagpipes about which we would like to know more. Each presents instruments from different Soviet republics. Here, a Georgian bagpipe is shown. We only know of one specimen in the West of this bagpipe, in the collection of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. It can be seen on this site at this location (use your browser's "back" button to return here).
