Sir Kyffin Williams 1918-2006

I had to fight very hard to get hold of this, it was the last of five sketches that came from a folder left to his gardener, the other sketches went for far more than I could afford but I got the last one. His paintings are now getting close to hitting a hundred thousand pounds and more, his value is only going one way and that is up.

Macallan 10-year-old 1970s (half bottle).

£600.00

Macallan 10-year-old 1970s (half bottle).
Macallan 10-year-old from the 1970s this is becoming the greatest investment in (off the shelf) Scottish whisky history, it has grown in value at an astonishing rate year after year as bottles are enjoyed. Brilliant investment!

The Macallan is the heavyweight when it comes to Speyside malts. Located in Craigellachie it was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid. Macallan’s are notably well sherried, due to the fact they are only ever matured in ex-sherry casks from Jerez, Spain. The Macallan is now recognised as one of, if not the finest, malt whiskies ever to grace Scotch whisky. They also happen to be extremely collectable. Characteristics: Sherried and oaky, floral and spicy.

Polar bear paper weight.

£750.00

Polar bear paper weight.
This is my favourite pieces, I have seen so many beautiful things in my time buying and selling but this is the best by far. A desk weight made of bronze and quarts I cannot risk taking it off its base to look for the foundry mark, so it must go down as unsigned, probably French from the turn of the last century. It is an absolutely charming subject of a Polar bear hunting on an ice flow that is breaking so the bear has flattened itself and is peering over the edge. Beautifully cast and so tactile, I have never seen another and I have been looking for over twenty years.

 

20cm long 9cm wide and 5cm high.

First Cask 1981 Auchentoshan.

£300.00

First Cask 1981 Auchentoshan.
Whisky can be classed as rare in many ways and this one hits them all, its a 15-year-old distilled on the 19th of March 1981 it is from a single cask meaning there will be only 250 bottles of this particular whisky, (of which this is bottle 211) and to cap it all it comes from the exclusive distilling region of Auchentoshan in the lowlands of Scotland. This is a truly great investment piece or a very special present for a very lucky person.

Victorian Claret jug.

£5,500.00

This is the most stunning piece of silver I have and very rare. By Edward & John Barnard of London in 1855, the engraving is thought to be by Elizabeth Buteux or maybe her daughter. Also thought to be one of a pear, so if you have the other you could buy this and triple the value.
