Customer Comments

We think that it is very important that you should enjoy buying a sculpture from us and so we are proud to share a few of the emails and letters that our customers have sent to us. We keep a lovely scrap book of handwritten notes from our customers and are more than happy to show this to anyone who would like to see it when they visit.

A big thank you to all our customers who have written to us and also allowed us to reproduce their letters here.

This morning I received the 'seated girl' and 'reading boy'. I LOVE them. In 2015, following the death of my father, I wanted to buy something in his memory. He was always an avid reader and the Jonathan Sanders figures are a perfect reflection of that love of books which my Dad had and passed on to my sister and I. On that occasion I bought 'the seated boy' and 'the girl reading book'. It was the second anniversary of my Dad's death on January 29th so I decided to treat myself to two more. I am delighted with them, in their own right as beautiful pieces of art and also as a lovely reminder of my much-missed Dad. Thank you.

Mrs. S.P. (Birmingham) Seated Girl and Reading Boy, 2 February 2017

Just had to let you know how pleased I am with the latest bronze to my collection. I was delighted in December when you said that you could cast a bitch lab for me, from the on-line pictures it looked remarkably similar to my own dog Ziva. Having received my bronze yesterday I see the likeness is even closer, see attached (not brilliant) photo. Many thanks.

Mr. M.A. (North Ayrshire) Sitting Labrador, 1 February 2017

Stress relief or art? - I purchased this gorgeous little Labrador sculpture for my husband for Christmas as a gift from his two rather large chocolate labs. The large labs are a wonderful antidote to a stressful life and the small sculpture is proving to be the same.
It's fits beautifully into the palm of his hand and he spends hours holding it whilst on the phone dealing with catastrophes that unfold daily in a large company. It's has already developed some patina and I'm sure it will continue to become more beautiful over the coming years.

Michelle, Sitting Labrador Maquette, 30 January 2017

This sculpture is superb, I will be buying my Carol another one for her birthday.

Stephen, Bull Elephant Maquete, 30 January 2017

Searched for ages for realistic bronze for lurcher mad wife. Found at last perfect would have preferred slightly larger hence four star not five. Beautifully modelled wife very pleased.

Edward, Standing Greyhound, 30 January 2017

It was delivered direct to my children in Cumbria, I know they were very pleased and it arrived promptly after placing the order

Robert, Sitting Labrador, 30 January 2017

Delighted with sculpture as was my wife when she opened the box on Christmas morning. It now has pride of place on the mantelpiece. Many thanks.

Ian, Sitting Cocker Spaniel, 30 January 2017

Amazing quality, I hope to purchase similar items at a later date.

Garry, Bull Elephant Maquette, 30 January 2017

As owners of 4 Cockers my partner was over the moon with the Sitting Cocker I bought her for Christmas. We think that you have captured the perfect pose that Cockers take when sitting alert.
There seems to be very few sculptures of these dogs and to find one that is so life like was fantastic and anyone who has this breed would agree with me.
A perfect present.

John, Sitting Cocker Spaniel, 30 January 2017

This is our second piece and we are as delighted as we were the first time. Would be great to add a young adult to our elephant collection. Maybe an older sister to protect the younger ones...

Francis, Elephant Mother and Baby II, 30 January 2017

Fox Tale - excellent sculpture with fine detail. Have recommended the website to friends

Chris, Running Fox, 30 January 2017

Bowled over with the quality - I am very impressed with the quality of this hot cast bronze. The rolling hare is very solid with no wobbling on its back. I have a small collection of Sue Maclaurin hare figures, each has a personality of its own.

Charlie, Rolling Hare, 30 January 2017

I was extremely lucky to see three wild hares boxing and i have been in love with this beautiful creatures ever since. My husband has recently bought me the flying hare which takes pride of place on the fire place. The sculpture is beautiful and is certainly not lonely as he joins my three smaller hare sculptures. Looking forward to adding to my wonderful collection.

Robert, Flying Hare II, 30 January 2017

Hi Deborah,
Our Hare arrived in a very Luxurious manner, great gift packaging, he was a Xmas present for my wife as when we came to look at our new house before we bought it we saw a hare run in front of us and we took that as a good omen, and subsequently bought the house and yes it is called Hare House.
Thanks for the prompt service and great packaging and info

Owen, Alert Hare Maquette, 30 January 2017

Delightful. Bought for my Daughter who is a great reader.

Marilyn, Reading Girl, 29 January 2017

The pig is lovely. He has such a happy face. We are fond of him.
And thank you for your very good and friendly service.

Milly (Holland), Large Pig Head Right, 29 January 2017

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased I was with my Sitting Labrador sculpture. I bought her as a memory of my adorable chocolate Lab, Cocoa who died recently. It really looks like her and often brings a tear to my eye. You also did a great job of making my sculpture into a girly dog! Thanks again, I'm chuffed, as they say up North! Best wishes.

Miss L.M. (Manchester) Sitting Labrador, 28 January 2017

These were bought for our son and his family living in Western Australe. We were delighted with them, and the recipients loved them!

Margaret, Boxing Kangaroos, 28 January 2017

Hip hip haray - Excellent quality.

Garry, Hippopotamus Maquette, 28 January 2017

100% customer satisfaction - I ordered 2 statues similar size and both of the girls range. They arrived beautifully boxed and very well protected. They are absolutely beautiful and I'm sure I will be ordering more.

Pauline, Large Lying Girl, 28 January 2017

Beautiful gift for our son and his wife, who have young daughters who love books.

Frederick, Girl Reading Book, 28 January 2017

A genuine report - Although the piece was beautifully sculpted, I did not realise that it would be so small (despite the dimensions being noted in your catalogue)

Michael, Sheep Maquette, 28 January 2017

Amazing quality - With the Rhinoceros being a endangered species, it's great to own such a quality item with great detail.
Excellent customer service and quality packaging. I will differently purchase further items when my budget allows.

Garry, Rhinoceros Maquette, 27 January 2017

Thank you it has arrived and I am delighted. The packaging is marvellous the contents perfect and Xmas present 'jobs done'.
Thank you so much.

Mr. D.T. (Buckinghamshire) Reading Girl, 3 December 2016

Just to let you know that the cat sculpture was delivered promptly today as promised. The packaging was very impressive and the cat was in perfect order. Many thanks for the excellent service and communication and above all the end product. It is a Christmas present for my wife and I know I will be in the goods books - at least for one day!

Mr. D.C. (West Midlands) Leaping Cat, 29 November 2016

The Elephant Mother and Baby Maquette arrived on schedule and was very well received.

Mr. J.R. (Buckinghamshire) Elephant Mother and Baby Maquette, 8 November 2016

The large pig arrived this morning. Thank you very much for the quick delivery.
It is a lovely pig and he looks so happy, he makes you smile.

Ms. M.M. (Holland) Large Pig Head Right, 24 October 2016

The two sculptures capture our two labs perfectly and are perfect for my wife’s Christmas present!
Thanks again for all your assistance!

Mr. P.T. (U.S.A.) Sitting Labrador and Standing Labrador, 19 October 2016

The Sitting Cat that you sent to my daughter. She was over the moon with it and has put it on her desk where she works. Please would you thank Deborah and Peter who were so helpful on the phone.

Mr. J.B. (West Sussex) Sitting Cat, 10 October 2016

The hares arrived before breakfast was on the table! They are really lovely and I'm very pleased with them. My son will be delighted I know.
It's been a pleasure doing business with you and I have no doubt I shall do so again.

Mrs. M.I. (West Sussex) Boxing Hares II, 22 August 2016

My wolf arrived this morning as promised. Your carriers were excellent, giving me a one hour timeframe and delivering 7 minutes after the earliest time given. Such a help in planning the day.
I was just going to have one of your pieces in a couple of months, but we liked them so much we have decided to start a collection, and cheated by ordering the wolf straight away. I'm so glad we did, as I love him. I think the running Cheetah will be next......

Mrs. J.S. (Shropshire) Howling Wolf Maquette, 11 August 2016

I have today received my order of Large Seated Boy and Large Girl Reading Book. It was such a joy to open the beautifully packaged items with the lovely certificates of authenticity and the wonderful sculptures inside. I’m looking forward to giving the appropriate sculpture to my daughter and son for their birthday presents in September and November and am sure they will, also, appreciate the loving craftsmanship that has gone into the creation of them.
Thank you for your passion and dedication and giving us such pleasure, and also for the prompt and informative delivery.

Mrs. S.S. (Cheshire) Large Seated Boy and Large Girl Reading Book, 10 August 2016

A note to thank you for the package which arrived on Friday as promised. Beautifully packaged as always. That’s me set up for Christmas.

Mrs. A.D. (Midlothian) Sitting Labrador, Sitting Labrador Maquette, Barn Owl Maquette, Sheep Maquette, 6 August 2016

We are well pleased with our model of the “Sitting Cat”. In particular we wish to keep the sculpture especially as it reminds us very much of our cat “Bobbie” who shared our home for 17 years and left us not long ago.
Kind regards,

Mr. and Mrs. J.H. (Hampshire) Sitting Cat, 21 July 2016

With reference to my recent order may I say thank you for your excellent service and also how delighted I am with the beautiful sculpture.

Mrs. J.C. (Lincolnshire) Flying Hare II, 29 April 2016

Thank you so much for my beautiful Lying Greyhound. I am delighted with it! My own greyhound often rests in that exact position, and the sculpture looks so much like her. It now has pride of place on my mantelpiece. The presentation box is also beautiful, as is the accompanying certificate. Thanks again.

Miss. J.G. (Moray) Lying Greyhound, 31 March 2016

I am delighted with my Hare! Thank you

Prompt delivery and easy to track delivery time. Product is exactly as described. In fact it looks even better than the pictures online. A perfect present.

Ms. C.H. (Hampshire) Rolling Hare, 19 December 2015

We received our Sitting Labrador yesterday.  My husband was absolutely delighted with it.  I just wanted to say thank you very much, you’ve made somebody very, very happy.

Mrs. W.H. (Yorkshire) Sitting Labrador, 16 December 2015

We enjoyed a super birthday day out yesterday – even the sun was shining! - and S. loved her present. ‘Reading Girl’ has already taken pride of place in our sitting room.
Thanks again for everything to you and all the team at N&F (and that includes Interlink...)

Mr. G.C. (Kent) Reading Girl 10 December 2015

Thank you so much for your extremely prompt service. I am absolutely delighted with my Lying Girl.

Mrs. P.B. (Wirral) Large Lying Girl, 12 October 2015

Dear Miss Foster,
I have just received the little Alert Hare Maquette which I ordered from you and I thought I would just like to tell you that I am absolutely thrilled to bits with it. I thought it would be beautiful, but it is more than that. It is simply superb.
The presentation is not for a few weeks yet and I propose to keep the hare as it is – in its velvet bag and in its box.
It has been such a pleasure dealing with you and with Nelson & Forbes. Thank you.

Mrs. A.H. (Inverness) Alert Hare Maquette, 16 September 2015

Dear Miss Foster,
The two hares arrived yesterday, and they are perfect! I just love them, and cannot wait to give one as a gift to a very dear friend. Thank you for all of your help.
Thank you again, and have a wonderful week.

Ms. G.K. (U.S.A.) Moon Gazing Hare Maquette and Hare Washing Ear Maquette, 11 August 2015

I received my "Standing Labrador" bronze yesterday which is superb! This is the first order I have placed with your company and must say that throughout your service and product presentation has been exceptionally excellent. Should your company ever decide to diversify into providing a Customer Service Manifest for companies, particularly PLCs, throughout the UK they would learn how to maintain customer goodwill. Excellent service, thank you.
Kind regards

Mr. R.B. (Northumberland) Standing Labrador, 22 July 2015

Hi Deborah,
Just thought I'd let you know it has just been delivered and we are delighted, and your customer service is first class.
Many thanks

Mr. B.S. (Lancashire) Large Flying Hare, 10 July 2015

I received my Sitting Labrador today. I'm thrilled!! It is so much like my departed pet, Dusk.
I wanted to write to you to commend ALL the staff working directly and indirectly for Nelson & Forbes. The service and attention I have received have been second to none. Everyone has delivered an excellent service and I wish your business much success in the future.
Thank you.

Mrs. V.H. (Liverpool) Sitting Labrador, 2 June 2015

Thank you for your prompt service. Very happy wife, elephant mad.

Mr. C.W. (Northumberland) Follow Me Maquette, 30 April 2015

Many thanks for the small bronzes which we are both very pleased with, we laughed out loud at the humour of the situation that they depict. One can almost see the African dust rising from these two young elephants as they charge about, not entirely in control of themselves, especially their trunks. We love elephants generally but the babies are pure magic. We shall keep you in mind for future buys.
Best wishes and kind regards,

Mr. J.B. (Yorkshire) Follow Me Maquette, 29 April 2015

Today the flying hare arrived. He is beautiful. I am very happy with it.
Thank you.

Many Thanks,

Mrs. W.B. (Staffordshire) Reading Girl, 7 May 2014

Over the past couple of weeks’ or so you have kindly despatched to me six delightful bronze sculptures, three from each of the above sculptors. I am extremely pleased with all six items and am very grateful to you for your very prompt and professional service.

If either Sue Maclaurin or Jonathan Sanders produce any further large pieces in the future, I was wondering if you would be kind enough to let me know as I would like to continue to add to my collection over the course of time. Thank you.

Many thanks, again, for your outstanding service over the past couple of weeks, which is greatly appreciated.

Mr. A.P. (Wiltshire) Large Lying Girl, Seated Girl, 2 April 2014

Just a quick note to say my two ‘Girls’ have just arrived. I am delighted with her (the other is a present – shame!) and we are getting to know one another this morning! I was very impressed too with the swift delivery and excellent service the courier provided, keeping the recipient up-to-date with delivery information. So, many thanks and I can see myself browsing the catalogue and ordering again in the future.

Mrs. M.G. (Essex) Large Lying Girl, 7 March 2014

Hi Deborah,
Received the "Large girl lying down" this AM. She is beautiful. So glad our son-in-law came along to see it - Jill, our daughter will absolutely love her.
Thank you.

Just to let you know my husband was absolutely delighted with the Lying Girl for his birthday, and is very much looking forward to receiving the Lying Boy later this year.
Thank you so much for all your help on this and if you could also thank Jonathan Sanders, the design and workmanship has been widely admired by friends over the new year period. The fact we have 2 children who love to read means that they have a real sentimental meaning to us as well.
I look forward to hearing from you later this year.

Mrs. C. (Buckinghamshire) Large Lying Girl, 5 January 2014

I am absolutely thrilled with this gift from my husband!

Mr. R.S. (Virginia, U.S.A.) Alert Hare, 30 December 2013

Dear Ms. Foster,
I just wanted to let you know how very well received your Flying Hare was, at Christmas. It was a gift for my husband, who has very precise likes and dislikes! The beautiful casting of Sue Maclaurin's sculpture pleased him very much. It has such joy of movement to it, and is so very lifelike. This will now rest on our mantelpiece here at home in snowy Ottawa, with real wild hares dashing across our yard outside (driving our dogs somewhat mad).
Please pass on our compliments to the artist, and to your most capable production team.
Thank you again.

Mrs. A.P. (Canada) Flying Hare II, 29 December 2013

Thank you for the very efficient delivery of my order which was greatly appreciated by my wife when she received it on Christmas Day. I came across the work of the foundry whilst visiting the art gallery on Queen Mary 2 and was impressed by the quality of the casting. You may also be interested to know that the order was received precisely as promised, following a warning by text.

Mr. R.L. (Essex) Boxing Hares, 27 December 2013

I recently purchased the cheetah and gave it to my wife as a surprise present on the occasion of our golden wedding last weekend. It was to remind her of our honeymoon in East Africa, and it sits in pride of place in conjunction with a beautiful Ugandan water cooler (a wedding present) and a model of a Masai maiden (a ruby wedding present). She is absolutely delighted with it, as indeed am I. It is a beautiful sculpture and we are very grateful for the pleasure and memories it brings us.

Mr. V.H. (Sussex) Cheetah on Branch, 25 March 2013

Delighted to have delivery of my hare. It is a 70th birthday gift for my husband and I am sure he will love it as much as I do. We have hares on our farm and Sue has captured perfectly one in full flight.
Thanks for your service.

Mrs. J.K. (South Lanarkshire) Running Hare, 15th February 2013

I've just received my order (Alert Hare) and I'm delighted with it!!

Mrs. J.H. (Norfolk) Alert Hare, 22nd January 2013

Many thanks for the reliable delivery of the Flying Cheetah....we are well is now on its way westwards to our daughter in New Jersey.

Mr. M.M. (Surrey) Flying Cheetah, 5 December 2012

I bought this for my wife's ??th birthday because we were taking her to Howletts Zoo @ Port Lympne and a special animal experience with Rhinos. I had kept the present as a surprise for later in the day. Little did I know then, but we were taken by the keeper into the "inner sanctum" and what did we see - a "mother & baby" (4 months old!) - wonderful. We also got right up close (stroking & feeding) to many more and in the stables one stood up over barrier as we carried on a conversation 2 feet away - brilliant! - Wonderful creatures. I just thought I had to let you know of our experience and what a wonderful memento your sculpture is and will be - especially the Baby.

Mr. A.F. (Surrey) Rhinoceros Mother and Baby, 1 November 2012

The 'Tumbling Hares' have arrived safe and sound. I'm delighted with the character, quality and detail of the piece, and I look forward to viewing your collection as it develops in the future.

Mr. M.S. (Cheshire) Tumbling Hares, 9 October 2012

Warthogs arrived safely – am absolutely delighted with them! Will be telephoning in a couple of weeks time for something else (to give away this time!). Can't have all my birthdays at once, can I!?

Mrs. C.E. (W. Sussex) Warthog Family, 18 September 2012

Many thanks we are very pleased. The Elephants occupy a pride of place in our home.

Dr. N.K. (Staffordshire) Follow Me Baby Elephants, 6 September 2012

We received the Hare today; lovely thank you for all your efforts in making this work.  Greatly appreciated.
Many thanks

Mr. and Mrs. M.D. (Australia) Hare Washing Ear, 8 August 2012

I would like to thank you for the prompt service and for the beautiful “Listening Hare".  This was ordered last Wednesday and arrived in New York on Monday.  My sister is absolutely delighted with this lovely sculpture.  A worthy celebration gift.
Thank you, Sue Maclaurin and to Nelson and Forbes for the helpful, friendly and rapid service.

Mrs J.R. (Essex) Listening Hare, 7 August 2012

I wanted to say that the lovely hare arrived perfectly on Monday morning in time for the retirement presentation at lunch time.  My friend had completed 29 years working for the NHS - and the hare was number 29 from the limited edition = how fitting.  She was thrilled with him.
Extremely good service and I have recommended you to others.

Ms. N.B. (West Sussex) Moon Gazing Hare, 5 August 2012

They arrived safely this morning. They are amazing! I love them. Thank you.

Mrs. P.P. (Middlesex) Boxing Hares, 3 August 2012

Received the order this lunchtime. Very pleased with the sculpture.

Mr. J.H. (Norfolk) Rhinoceros Mother and Baby, 1st August 2012

Order arrived today. Just wanted to say thank you for the speed of delivery and the quality of the item itself.

Mr. S.K. (London) Rhinoceros Mother and Baby, 1st August 2012

Just to let you know how very pleased I am with all five of my sculptures.  They echo – in my opinion – the impressionist style of painting.  It is not possible to have a favourite, I love them all.  They are all very special.
There is an almost living quality to bronze, yes I know it’s daft, but that’s how I see it.
I will be very pleased to receive any new catalogue you publish, with a view to adding to my collection.

Mrs. P.P. (Middlesex) Alert Hare, Moon Gazing Hare, 19 July 2012

I am writing to thank you for ‘Tumbling Hares’ safely received today.
My wife and I are both delighted at the aesthetic and technical excellence of Sue’s work. Please pass our thanks on to her.
As long retired art teachers we both appreciate quality when we see it!

Mr. and Mrs. J.W. (Leicestershire) Tumbling Hares, 10 July 2012

Thank you very much for your prompt arrangement! It has arrived!
The quality is satisfied our all family. And we also enjoyed the beautiful booklet.  Very impressive handmade sculptures.  We talked each other how do English craftsman carve from solid bronze by their hands!  We are deeply happy to receive this artistic bronze.  I wanted to put it onto my fireplace... but Japanese houses, we do not have fireplace!  So I put it onto our shoes closet.
I am proud of that I am a first purchaser from Japan for you!

Mr. K.M. (Japan) Running Hare, 26 June 2012

A rather belated letter to thank you for the beautiful sculpture of a running cheetah that I received last month.  I am absolutely delighted with it and it now takes pride of place on the mantelpiece. Having had the good fortune to see these cats in action in Africa many times, Jonathan Sanders has made it perfectly. The other thing I wanted to mention was how impressed I was by your telephone ordering system. Being fed up with the internet and the time it takes to fill in all the details, think of a password etc., it was a pleasure to talk to someone on the telephone who was courteous and friendly, and to complete my order with the minimum amount of hassle. My only problem now is that the cheetah is tired of chasing nothing, and the warthogs tempt…!

Mrs. J.W. (Hampshire) Running Cheetah, 12 June 2012

Dear Deborah,
Super service, thank you. Have purchased one! Thanks.

Miss. C.C. (West Sussex) Nelson & Forbes Gift Bag, 13th May 2012

I have just received my Elephant and Baby and would like to say a big "thank you". They are beautiful and now have pride of place on my mantelpiece.

Mrs. C.J. (London) Elephant Mother and Baby, 11th May 2012

I’m very pleased with my Boxing Hares.

Mrs. M.P. (Isle of Wight) Boxing Hares, 2nd May 2012

Thank you so much - pig just arrived and it is lovely. I am sure the people for whom I bought it will be equally delighted. Great service from you too - I'm a very satisfied customer!

Mr. N. R. (Kent) Large Pig Head Right, 1st May 2012

Order safely received on 3 April, and a great success, thank you.

Mr. G. S. (Suffolk) Warthog Family, 4th April 2012

Dear Sir, I was recently lucky enough to receive a ‘Follow Me’ as a combined 70th Birthday present (with my wife) from my son. I look forward to a long and happy association with your company. Yours sincerely,

Mr T.B. (Co. Cork) Follow Me Baby Elephants, 25th March 2012

Dear Deborah, Product first class, presentation first lass, everything has QUALITY. Many thanks for the lovely hares. More to follow with luck.

Mr D.S. (Norfolk) Boxing Hares, 24th March 2012

Thank you for the delivery today.  You’ve made my wife very happy!

Mr J.C. (Yorkshire) Flying Hare, 17th March 2012

Deborah, Many thanks for your help. Turns out the parcel was with the concierge! What is more the gift was truly appreciated! The couple who received it are absolutely delighted with it! Thanks again,

Mrs. G.S. (London) Elephant Mother and Baby, 27th February 2012

Dear Debbie, The Hippo and Baby arrived on Tuesday - very quick carriage - and we are delighted with them.

Mrs J.I. (Lincolnshire) Hippopotamus Mother and Baby, 19th February 2012

The pieces arrived and were hugely appreciated.

Mr. S.T. (Oxfordshire) Baby Elephants Tug of War, 21st February 2012

The hare did arrive, and is absolutely wonderful! He is, however, currently hibernating in a cupboard, awaiting my husband's birthday, and wishes me to send you his regards.

Mrs. A.K. (Minnesota, USA) Hare Washing Ear, 17th February 2012

Hi Deborah,
Apologies for not letting you know sooner but the Alert Hare arrived on the day you said it would and all fine. It sits on our mantelpiece and gives us great pleasure - a really nice bronze.
Many thanks once again,

Mr. N.S. (London) Alert Hare, 15th February 2012

Hi Deborah, VERY, VERY pleased with our Boxing Hares – arrived safely as promised on Monday 30/1/12 – they are SUPERB. We are going to thoroughly enjoy them. Regards,

Mr. and Mrs. R.B. (Cardiff) Boxing Hares 1st February 2012

Thanks so much for the beautiful sculptures and care and thought that has also gone into safe packaging. Hope to order more from catalogue when funds allow! Best wishes C.M. (and Gracie, dog aged 13!!)

Miss C.M. (London) Boxing Hares, 30th January 2012

Arrived safely. Went down very well. Thankyou for your help-I'll be back soon.
Kind regards,

Mr. J.S. (Suffolk) Listening Hare, 29th December 2011
