A Recent Discovery from Madagascar

This is a massive example of the very rare Jurassic Aulacosphinctus Infundibuls ammonite. It has only been found in the centre of enormous Septarian nodules and has to be extracted, cleaned and polished by hand. A master craftsman has revealed the external and internal structure of this fabulous specimen.

150 Million Years Old, Madagascar

Weighing in at 4.25kg and measuring 23cm, (9 inches), plus its’ custom made stand, this is as good as it gets! The only other one we have seen was sold at Christie’s, lot number 102, in their 21st April 2016 Travel, Science and Natural History sale.

A Major New Discovery From Madagascar

Just in from Madagascar, a massive free-standing “seabed conglomeration”. Dating back to the mid-Cretaceous Period, some 100 million years ago, this beautiful piece provides evidence of a natural underwater disaster. Consisting of a number of ammonites, the largest of which is 11 inches across, bivalves and mollusks each expertly prepped out of the fossilised sediment.

This fine piece stands 18 inches tall, 15 inches across and weighs an impressive 32kgs.

Over the past few years we have been building up a collection of aircraft relics from World War II.
Below is a list of aircraft available at the beginning of 2017. Many of
these aircraft are from famous air battles and are therefore in short supply
and with such a wide range we can’t bring every item to each show.

If there is an aircraft in which you are particularly interested,
please contact us so that we can confirm availability and arrange to
bring it to a show near you.
