A strange listing from a seller in the Republic of Ireland.
Vintage practice set with Leo Rowsome marked bellows - The chanter is missing a reed and it's top. The blow pipe and chanter look like they were made by the same craftsman - maybe somebody can confirm if it is a Rowsome chanter. the funny thing is that the listing is on eBay UK for sale in the UK only, there is no corresponding listing on eBay.ie

That would be very hard to do given the limited information in the photo. I had a Rowsome chanter for a while that was originally a basic student model, it had a basic turning style like that of the chanter in the listing amd it was made in a less than premium type of wood. But it would be foolish to base an indentification that information. It would worry me a bit the seller doesn't include an image of the front of the chanter.

Not Leo, looks very similar to the work that Leon made to fill the back orders. Bellows and stocks were stamped Leo still but in the same unfinished wood as this one. I'd put money on it being a Leon set. Still not bad but rather crude, even compared to Leo's 'student' sets.
