It is with great pleasure to present our 2011 Windsor Sale for your enjoyment. We feature an outstanding collection that was committed to us over a year ago for this special Windsor venue. Supplemented by many consignors, we take great pride in offering something for every collector, from the newcomer to the most discriminating collector. Analyze each lot carefully and discover many hidden treasures.
Our company is primarily composed of the Bell Family - Dawn, Brian, Geoffrey and Sylvia. We also have taken great pride to surround ourselves with the most reputable people in the business to ensure our offerings are presented with integrity, honesty and fairness to both the seller and buyer. A huge Thank You goes out to Sandy Campbell, Bill Cross, Michael Findlay, Bob Graham, Gary Miller, Greg Packer, George Murray, Blaine Hare, Mary-Anne Luzba, Byron O’Leary, Don Olmstead, Ron LeBlanc, and Michael Wilson for their efforts in preparing the catalogue in a timely fashion.
