Sold pieces no longer listed in this "for sale" section of the website
I occasionally leave a “sold” item on these “for sale” pages if I think it is of particular interest, however, the majority of sold items are kept on the archive section of the site: Press “Items for Sale” on the top bar and scroll down to the bottom of the page - you will find an archive section which contains pictures of many pieces sold over the past few years – I hope that you will enjoy looking through them!
Sadly we can’t always afford the things that we want straight away!
Whilst I’m always happy to discuss the price of a particular item I also recognise that sometimes the piece that a collector wants is more than they can afford straight away – to avoid you missing out I’m happy to hold a particular item until you are ready to pay, or you can pay in instalments. Please let me know if you would like more information. Needless to say this incredible biplane is not mine - if only!
