Scott Catalogue No. 1084

A Zukra, perhaps an ancestor of many other sorts of pipes but in any event certainly ancient. The piper's hand position is problematical - he only has one hand on the double-chanter, and is grasping the bag with the other. That'll keep the music simple! See the next stamp, number 58, for an even bigger problem. For more about the Zukra, see this page, here on this site (use your "back" button to return here).
