    Try calling Andy Taylor. He is plugged into decorative top line brass!

    Bobby and Steve,

    Thanks for the kind words.
    Always makes an artist happy, that they can bring a little beauty into this crazy world.
    Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.
    So often there is no feed back,that actually reaches the makers.
    Again , thank you.

    Not in England, but Artistic Engraving engraved a cornet for me and did a really nice job on it. The turnaround time was fast, too, and the cost was very reasonable.

    That workmanship of yours is excellent and well though out. Very skilled indeed, great imagination and careful execution, I know how difficult it is.
    If I could make a suggestion. If there were a point of comparison of what you charge, roughly per hour, size and/ or complication of handwork between what other engravers have listed as starting fees it may be helpful to many members of this forum who have considered having such work done.
