Navigator: John Costello

Signaller/Gunner: Roly Hammersley
Mid Upper Gunner: Fred Coney
Rear Gunner: Howie Wing

Overall print size 34 x 24 in
Print Number 221/1250     Ref SBSB051
 

The main problem with this print is that is has been handled poorly and has a number of small creases, mainly in the border areas but also some in the picture area where it has been gripped too firmly or maybe rolled up without due care. On the plus side the marks in the picture area are small and not really visible looking directly at the print, only when you hold it at an oblique angle and look against the light. The print has never been framed, It has been stored dark and flat since new and the picture area and signatures are sharp and unfaded. Careful framing would render the imperfections invisible and give a fine finished piece. Signed and numbered by the artist - with certificate.
  £65  (assuming posted in tube)   SOLD

Print Number 264/1250     Ref SBSB052
 

Another print that has suffered from poor handling with a number of small creases in the border areas but also in the picture area. The marks in the picture area are small and not really visible looking directly at the print, only when you hold it at an oblique angle and look against the light. The print has never been framed, It has been stored dark and flat since new and the picture area and signatures are sharp and unfaded. Careful framing would render the imperfections invisible and give a fine finished piece.
Signed and numbered by the artist - with certificate.

Duel of Eagles by Robert Taylor1

Duel of Eagles by Robert Taylor
signed by the legendary
Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader CBE, DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar, FRAeS, DL

 General Adolf Galland Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds

Duel of Eagles by Robert Taylor - Galland and Bader signatures

This print has never been framed, It has been stored in the original shipping tube since new and the picture area and signatures are sharp and unfaded. Unfortunately storage in the cardboard tube has resulted in a number of small brown marks (foxing), mainly in the right hand white border but also a couple in the image area. The print has also been handled badly, probably been taken in and out of the tube repeatedly, leaving numerous small kinks in the paper, predominately in the right hand border but also in the image area.

Lancaster by Robert Taylor

Lancaster by Robert Taylor
One of a restricted edition of prints signed by legendary Lancaster pilot
Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC OM DSO** DFC*
Image size 18 x 13.5 in
Ref JC001
 

Lancaster, Spitfire, Hurricane and Duel of Eagles are early Robert Taylor prints that we get offered quite a lot. Unfortunately for various reasons that are rarely in good condition. Fading is the biggest problem, they have usually been framed (not very well) and hung on display for many years - there is nothing that can be done to recover a faded print.

 This example though has been stored away from light so the colours are still sound - unfortunately the white border has been trimmed off and there are a number of blemishes and handling marks visible under close examination. The signature of Leonard Cheshire is sound though and the imperfections would be mostly invisible if the print was framed. For a completely mint example of this print we would advertise at around £450-500.   This copy is for sale at just £SOLD

Memorial Flight by Robert Taylor

Memorial Flight by Robert Taylor
signed by the legendary
Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC OM DSO** DFC*
AVM Johnnie Johnson CB CBE DSO** DFC*
Norman Jackson VC

A few fairly mild handling marks on the right hand side of the print - mostly in the border areas. A small mark about 2mm in diameter in the top tinted border.

This print has never been framed and has been stored flat and dark leaving an excellent crisp picture area and signatures with no fading. Framing would cover the imperfections easily - original certificate included.
Overall print size 27 x 18 in       Ref VG00420        £90   SOLD

Victory Over Dunkirk by Robert Taylor

Victory Over Dunkirk by Robert Taylor
signed by: Wing Commander Bob Stanford-Tuck DSO DFC** AFC

Originally framed in 1988 but only displayed for a short while before going into storage.
The print has now been removed from the frame. There is a faint discolouration from where the print has been in contact with the mount which extends to about 10mm into the tinted bordered area - the discolouration is not as significant as many we have seen as good quality mount card was used.

In each of the left and right white outer border areas there is a faint mark a couple of inches long on the edge of the border caused by framing tape. Having been stored for so long in dark, dry conditions the image area and signatures are in superb condition. This print would look excellent reframed. It is one of 1500 - they were not individually numbered but were signed by Robert Taylor as well as Bob Stanford-Tuck.   Overall print size 23 x 18 in - the original certificate had been stuck to the back of the frame and was not recoverable but we can provide a copy.  £95    Ref SB0047  SOLD

Zemke's Wolfpack by Robert Taylor

Zemke’s Wolfpack by Robert Taylor
signed by 4 P-47 Thunderbolt Aces:
Hub Zemke, Francis Gabreski
Robert Johnson and Walker Mahurin

Overall print size 33 x 24 in
This print has been framed at some point in the past - there is a faint discolouration around the outer edge of the tinted border where it has been in contact with the mount card - there is a small strip of acid-free tape on the top edge of the reverse of the print, also consistent with having been framed.

 The outer white border has been trimmed a little and is half an inch or so smaller than it should be. The image area and signatures are in top condition. Reframing would cover the faults with this print and it would look excellent.  Signed and numbered by the artist - with certificate. 956/1250   Ref SB042        £95    SOLD
