  1. Interesting to see the price that was gained for this wonderful piece.

    I manage Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village here in Warrnamboool and we have the loch ard minton peacock in our collection.

    Our peacock has just been reissured for $4m Australian dollars.

    You will also see that we have in our online gift shop the last 6 Royal Doulton 50cm Minton Peacock - These are based on the minton peacocks.

    These are the last 6 available as we have taken all the remaining stock from Royal Doulton warehouses. They are available for $19500 each and we will freight anywhere in the world.
