Replacing Artificial Ivory on Northumbrian Smallpipes
It’s now illegal in the UK to buy or sell most items containing ivory. Many historical set of Northumbrian Smallpipes were made with ivory end caps and fittings, and increasingly I’m being asked to replace these with artificial ivory. Here’s a set of Northumbrian Smallpipes I’ve just finished work on. The replacement parts can be seen fitted and in place with the original ivory parts on the table.
