Very Rare Royal Doulton Figure 'the Piper' Hn3444 Scottish Bagpiper - Beautiful For Sale

Very Rare Royal Doulton Figure 'the Piper' Hn3444 Scottish Bagpiper - Beautiful

BEAUTIFUL scottish bagpiper Royal Doulton figurine ‘THE piper’ HN3444 – FIGURE in mint condition and extremely rare!

This is a stunning piece of art in the form of a Royal Doulton ceramic figure of a Scottish man playing the bagpipes.

His costume is beautifully detailed in the authentic, traditional Scottish dress for a bagpiper. He wears a tartan kilt with a sporran, white hose with red garter flash, a sgian dugh (black dagger) placed in the top of the hose and showing only the hilt, ghillie brogues on his feet and a Glengarry hat with a clan badge on his head.

He is handmade and hand decorated, modelled by Peter A Gee and released in 1993. Please see the photo for details. According to the research we have done he is extremely hard to find, especially in such fantastic condition, as there were only 750 figures of this model produced worldwide.

‘The Piper’ stands 10” (25cm) high and weighs 381g. He really is in mint condition as far as the ceramics are concerned. His only fault is that the lead drone (the first and highest of the three pipes) from his bagpipe is slightly bent. However, we do not think that this would be difficult or expensive to fix, as the pipes are made of metal and a professional should be able to put the pipe back into position easily.

This striking figure of a Scottish bagpiper in traditional dress would be a fantastic addition to a collection. And it would, of course, make an especially nice gift – you can imagine a piper being impressed with this lovely figure! Or for anybody who is interested in piping or their Scottish ancestry.

It is very difficult to find this particular model – we have only seen a few and all of them were priced in excess of $500. However, we would like to give everyone a chance of owning ‘The Piper’ and so are offering him for sale in a sale. We are sure that this rare figure will attract a lot of interest, so don’t miss out!

HAPPY offerDING AND HAPPY Easter!
