Unicorn

Rare Old Solid Silver Darts
Manged to pick these from a guy in New York USA.
(Took a hell of lot a bartering as he wanted a small fortune for them).

In the end, I paid him $200 which was a fair price in the end due to the age and uniqueness.

As you can see on the back of the case, there is a auction stickers for non other than 'Christies', I looked it up on their site and sure enough, there is a photo of the darts there being sold along side a few other quality items which as a lot sold for $4183.

The darts are hallmarked (made in England). (will get the dates and makers details later).

Enjoy -

Nice!

I seen those, he listed them a few times and I thought he was asking way too much for them considering their condition was a little worse for wear.

Surprised he relented at $200 really, but would be nice to know who made them and for what?

I wonder if they were made especially for some rich person?

Yep, I think at one stage he wanted around $1000 for them !! :s

In all my years collecting darts I've never seen another set like them made out of silver (I've seen the shape in brass).
So yeah, does make you wonder if some rich guy had them specially made up.

I just really loved the auction connection with them.

Really do need to give them a polish !

I saw them listed a few times as well, but like Darren thought he was asking to much at the time.
But you seem to have got them for a decent price Stuart.....Nice darts

Thanks.
They still have a nice spot on the shelf.
I polished them up not so long ago as they were absolutely filthy and tarnished.
