1700 French Musette de cour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "The musette is a refined form of bagpipe with a bellows that generates wind to inflate the bag and sound a chanter and a bourdon. The bourdon is a device to play the drones. This musette is one of the luxurious pieces used in French aristocratic circles between 1620 and 1760....The silk bag is almost entirely bleached out, but still shows some pink and yellow threads."
