Sale of Fantastic Old Coaches

Recommended Posts

Early in March, Bonhams - one of the top London Auctioneers will be having a sale of early

coaching items.   This will include uniforms, accessories such as lamps, whips, harness  -  and,

some of the finest coaches that I have seen outside of museums.   They feature most of the

different types of coaches  - and include a Royal Victorian Open Carriage.


Look them-up on line or, send for a catalogue. This is almost sure to become a collector's item

in the future.    I have attempted to capture about 14 images and have kept the brief details

shown by Bonhams.   Bear with me if I have to split them  -  this is a lot of work and the MD slows  

me up.
