    Here's a set on EbayUK which the seller says are 1960s Lawrie (Glasgow) but as you can see don't resemble Lawrie pipes in the least. I also doubted the date, as the pipes look more recent. All the Scottish makers AFAIK were using Catalin at that time.

    Notice the distinctive single bead occurring two places on the Tenor tops.



    On another site a helpful piper informed us that these pipes are Glencoe (Ontario Canada).

    Matt Marshall served an apprenticeship with Lawrie in the 1960s then moved to Canada in the 1970s where he initially made Lawrie-style pipes but soon evolved his own distinct style. It's said he made around 500 sets before getting out of pipemaking by around 1980.

    It's said that Glencoe pipes are stamped GLENCOE CANADA in the Bass cord guide.

    I tried contacting the Ebay seller but I get a message saying that the seller can't be contacted, which is something I've never seen before in all my Ebay years.
