Chisholm, John

John Chisholm was listed as a Glasgow pipemaker from 1901 until 1912. At this point be became partners with Hunter & Co. Salerooms, this business continued until 1971.

The set below is hallmarked 1913, but is most likely a Henderson bagpipe.  John Chisholm was known to be a silversmith so at least the silver is his :)

Thanks to Micheal McBride for these great photos!
