Balloon Buster by Robert Taylor 
This print was purchased directly from Robert Taylor’s publishers the Military Gallery, upon its release in 1998. It has a few mild handling kinks in the left hand white outer border that would be completely concealed by framing. The print has been stored flat and dark in a high quality acid-free browser sleeve and so the image colours are strong and in 'as new' unfaded condition. It has never been framed. It unfortunately does not have the CoA.

£200 or offers.

Please note this print is being sold directly by the seller and any sale arrangement would be exclusively between them and the buyer. Aviation Art World have not examined the print. The description of the print’s condition has been supplied by the seller.
