Set of Silver Naill Pipes for Sale/ Victoria Piping Results

Seller Katrina Harris: I am selling a high quality set of pipes by David Naill and Co. They are the DN4A model, African Blackwood, fully combed and beaded with imitation ivory projecting mounts and hallmarked Sterling silver ferrules, slides and ring caps.

The set also has closed end ferrules on the centre and top joints, and a full plain solid silver mouthpiece. They were my brother’s but he can now no longer play after suffering a cerebral attack. The pipes are in very good condition as can be seen from the photographs.

Current retail price for a new set of DN4A pipes is well over £2,000. Looking for £1600 ono. Tel 07930 854272.
