Order Now To Avoid Disappointment - Limited Stocks Now Available for Christmas Delivery

Stocks of each sculpture are limited for delivery before Christmas, so we suggest ordering early to secure your preferred sculpture.  We can always deliver closer to Christmas if you would like us to.

In the event that the stock we have of a piece sells out, the dispatch date for the next castings of that piece will be shown in red in the top right corner of the product page, below the ‘Add To Cart’ button.

If you place an order for one of these pieces, it will be reserved for you and dispatched on the date shown.  We WILL dispatch your order on this date, so you can order out of stock items with full confidence that it will arrive on the date you expect.


Last Delivery Date for Christmas – Friday 22nd December

Until 1pm on Thursday 21st December we will be taking orders for delivery by courier for pre-Christmas delivery.  You can place your order either by telephone or on our website.  We will dispatch orders taken on Thursday 21st December that evening, using a next working day courier service.   Please ensure that someone is available to sign for your delivery on 22nd December as it cannot be left without a signature.  If you provide us with a mobile telephone number or an email address, the courier will message you in the morning to give you a one hour delivery slot.

Please note that delivery to some Highlands, Channel Islands and Northern Ireland addresses takes two days.  If you are in any doubt about this, please call us.


Overseas Gift Delivery Service

We regularly send gifts on our customers’ behalf to recipients overseas. If the recipient lives outside the EU, VAT will be removed from the purchase price of the sculpture. If you would like to order a gift online for delivery to an overseas recipient, select the destination country from the drop down menu above ‘Get Shipping Price’ next to the main photograph of the sculpture and you will be shown the price of the item (without VAT if applicable) and the delivery cost and duration. You can then checkout as usual and as soon as you enter the overseas delivery address, you will automatically be charged the correct overseas price and delivery. 

If you prefer, please call us on 01442 256290 and we will be delighted to give you an international shipping price and take your order over the telephone.  Remember to request a personalised gift note from you, to complete the lucky recipient’s experience!
