“Thank you so much for your great presentation on Thursday last and welcome to the Circle.  One or two of our members can be quite prickly when being addressed by outside speakers and the warm reception you received is a tribute to your ability to find the perfect 'pitch', and your careful planning of the talk.  ”

“Hello again, Robin, Good news!  The claret jug arrived early and in good order.  No problems at all, so I thank you once again, and will toast you at my next dinner party when this claret jug will no doubt be put to good use.

“Please let RB know that we have just purchased a copy of his book and regard it as one of the finest publications we have ever seen – just superb. Can’t really say much more than that, can we?  P.S. – We now face the danger of having to extend our interest in Decanters and 18th C Drinking Glasses, to encompass coasters, wine labels etc., – and we haven’t been collectors for very long –  Many thanks and kind regards.   ”

“Thanks for this. The glasses duly arrived safe and sound, I'm pleased to
say. They were ceremonially and enthusiastically 'christened' last night, and
the wine tasted all the better for being drunk from them. We look forward to long and enjoyable service from them. Thanks for your kind humorous attention. I look forward to speaking with
you again in the near future.  DS   Somerset”

“I regularly open your website and am amazed - and then re-amazed - at the
sheer breadth and stunning quality of your collection.  Particular in the Ship

“Referring to a pair of Decanters... "They are beautiful! I love them! I noticed, after searching, the numbers on the stopper and decanter. Thank you so much, Robin. I'd be happy to do business with you again."   ”

“Hi Robin,
Just a "quickie" to say thank you for a smashing and interesting presentation tonight. We had a great atmosphere, and everyone enjoyed themselves. A lot of people commented to me what a good evening it was.
Many thanks

“Today I recieved the two packages in good order. I'am very pleased with the items and the quality. Specially the bin label and the very small screwcork are exceptional. Also the screwcork that you purposed is a nice one.   But what me also impressed is the book that you wrote. I took a quick view and already  realized that it took you plenty, plenty of time and effort to come to such a result.   I'am sure that it will contribute to my joy and understanding of the world of antiques and history.   Thank you once again and we will keep in touch.   H v.d.B Netherlands”
