As silver prices continue to soar not only are the tanks fine works of art but a sound investment too, many of the tanks have a considerable weight in sterling silver. The tanks are all sterling silver hallmarked.

A stunning hallmarked silver WW2 German Tiger Tank. This is a beautiful example of the quality table centre pieces found within the Military Messes. The tank itself measures some 10 inches in length by 5 inches width, standing almost 4 inches in height. On its base it is approx 11 x 7 inches and heavy. This is simply the finest table decoration you can strive to own. The detail on the tank is staggering, it screams out the finest quality yet sits on its plinth in a very understated way, again the sign of true craftmanship, it does not need to say anything, it simply is! The tank is beautifully crafted by hands that are very accustomed to the high quality demanded by both the Officers and Warrent Officers & Sargeants Messes. Silverware like this only graces the finest tables, they are rarely found on the open market as many are passed down through the years within the Mess inventory, or where presented as wedding/leaving gifts by the Mess, they then remain within the families. A beautiful item, not only of a truely German wartime icon but of a grace that is somewhat lacking today, a fine table piece and a sound investment (especially as silver prices continue to soar). Lay your table and eat with the finest! A very detailed and scarce dining table centre piece, very heavy. This is absolutely beautiful and made by the finest silversmiths. Made originally for a German Veterans group. Simply stunning! A fine centre piece for any collection.

Dine in the presence of the finest! A beautifully hallmarked silver menu holder in the form of a WW1 Royal Tank Corps Officer. These menu holders were first introduced into the Messes of the Royal Tank Corps towards the end of the First World War and have graced the tables of the Messes ever since. By the late 1960s there were hardly any surviving menu holders left, many had been lost, damaged or 'liberated', thus the few remaining were treasured with reverence and fond thoughts of those bygone days when the Tank Regiments were numerous. Therefore, we have produced a limited number, faithful in execution to the smallest detail - we re-engineered from one of the few surviving originals, re-chasing and presenting as they were back in 1918-19 - for the remaining Royal Tank Regiments and the Veterans Associations. The menu holder, approx 3.5 inches in height, bears a current hallmark and brings a grace of a former time to any table. The Menu holders will be available in either single figures or table sets of 6 and/or 12, price quoted is per each figure.

In recent times Officers of the Royal Tank Regiment have wanted to compliment their vintage Royal Tank Corps menu holders with a more modern figure hence these lovely new figures were developed wearing the number one dress. The menu holder, approx 3.5 inches in height, bears a current hallmark and brings a grace of a former time to any table.

A stunning and rare tank plaque of a WW1 Tank. Plaque has maker/company details 'William Foster, Lincoln'. 'Foster' made such WW1 tanks to give to suppliers and people involved in the manufacture of the tanks. It is very heavy as its made of cast iron, others were made in aluminium and there are known to be a number of bronze tanks made for the respective Foster A, B, C & D foundries. Some tanks also found their way on to the sides of threshing engines in the 1920s. It is about 38 inches long and around 13 inches tall. Obviously due to the weight (22kg plus) its UK buyers only unless you make your own collection arrangements at your own expense. A TNT delivery within the UK, is about 45.00-50.00 plus, depending on packaging weight. That aside its a beautiful metal plaque that simply demands a solid tankie collector to re-home it. Obviously worthy of intense appreciation!

A very rare Royal Tank Regiment wall plaque in a chromed finish for external mounting. This is the only known wall plaque with a top quality chromed finish. It was made as a hard wearing weather protected (i.e. no troopers were required to 'bull it') wall plaque for mounting outside of the Regimental Headquarters building. It is stunning, a real quality piece measuring about 12 inches in height (see cap badge for comparison) that still gleams.

The 'Tanks' - a fine set of cap badges defining the history of the tanks from WW1 through WW2 to the modern day Royal Tank Regiment. I am regularly asked by both serving personnel, messes and veteran associations for the set of badges that make up 'The Tanks', so here they are, top to bottom - Royal Armoured Corps with a Kings Crown and the Queens Crown version. This is followed by the badges of the WW1 Machine Gun Corps, the Tank Corps and the WW2 Royal Tank Regiment, all with Kings Crowns, then on the last row the current Royal Tank Regiment with a Queens Crown. All genuine period badges that make a fine collection when mounted. Recently I have been supplying sets for regimental presents and certificates of service, I can supply both O/Rs (other ranks) and Officer badges. This is a lovely set of badges that are both iconic and historical, you need to budget about 80-100 for an O/Rs set of badges, prices will vary depending on what badges that I can find, hence the price on application. Todate I have provided some 60+ sets of badges. I have been asked about framing too, yes, I have access to a good local framer, again if that service is required simply ask and I will be happy to provide an appropriate quotation.

A very scarce surviving regimental fireback to the Machine Gun Corps. Most likely from the Officers Mess, very heavy, solid iron approximately 22 x 17.5 inches. These items are rarely ever seen on the market as they simply did not survive the passage of time especially with many such items going into the melting pot during WW2 when metals were sought after to support the war effort. Lovely historical collectable.

This is an early 1950s ashtray, finely done, commemorating the town's Sherman and the American forces that fought in the town and surrounding area in the latter part of WW2.

A pair of ornamental gongs from Hong Kong with the RTR badge on each gong face.

Regimental signs as per the 1914-1940 period - these signs are made using the original patterns of the garrison and barrack roads from the pre-war period. Original signs to the time were made in heavy cast iron and are incredibly rare to survive the passage of time, to re-create that time we have re-engineered the patterns to produce much lighter aluminium signs in the correct size, style and design. An ideal present opportunity for that little something different - we have recently done signs 'showing the way' to the 'Tank Park', 'The Dozer Tank', 'NAAFI' and 'THE OC' ... What would you like? Simply email and we'll see if we can help. The signs for civil use were white background with black lettering and reversed for military establishments. Price per sign.

A scarce WW1 Machine Gun Corps (MGC) gold sweetheart locket in excellent condition, locket has a photograph of a uniformed MGC soldier on one side and another of the chap in civilian clothes, at a guess the latter is most likely post war meaning he was one of the lucky ones to survive the war, the locket is 9 carot marked '9Ct', lovely piece of MGC sweetheart history. Approx. size 30mm diameter.
