As the countdown to Christmas looms and last order dates approach, Nelson & Forbes expect thousands of shoppers to seek out their last minute gifts at the Olympia Show and online.
London, UK, December 09, 2011 -- With just a few shopping days left before Christmas, most people hope to have their Christmas shopping finished and under the tree. Unfortunately, this isnít always the case and for those who have left shopping to the last minute, Nelson & Forbes Sculpture Company has the solution.
Nelson & Forbes (http://www.nelsonandforbes.co.uk/) will be exhibiting their collection of limited edition bronze sculptures on stand R11 at Olympiaís shopping village, located in the National Hall. Exhibiting between 13th and 19th December, this will be the final opportunity for shoppers to buy directly in person from Nelson & Forbes in time for Christmas.
The 19th is also an important date for those who wonít be attending the Olympia Show but still have last-minute gifts to buy: customers can buy Nelson & Forbesí collection online (http://www.nelsonandforbes.co.uk/online_shop.php?osCsid=8de92daa6dbe98ffc0295eb037b8ac18 ) with a last order date of the 19th December for Christmas delivery. With just five days left until Christmas, this will be a welcome opportunity for last-minute shoppers.
The collection, inspired by both British and African wildlife, has something to suit almost everyone you are buying for this Christmas. Sue MacLaurinís pieces in the collection include bronze hares (http://www.nelsonandforbes.co.uk/sue-maclaurin-listening-hare-p-353.html ), cats and pigs, and make the perfect presents for pet lovers, fans of all things British, or those with a passion for the countryside.
Nelson & Forbes will also be showcasing two recently released pieces at the Olympia show; the Leaping Lioness and Rhinoceros Mother & baby by renowned sculptor Jonathan Sanders (http://www.nelsonandforbes.co.uk/jonathan-sanders-c-103.html ). These pieces, in editions of just 150 and 250 respectively, are part of a larger collection of African wildlife by Jonathan Sanders and go to show that the Olympia show is the perfect place to buy something truly special this Christmas.
Every piece made by Nelson & Forbes is created in bronze using the ancient art of lost wax casting, which can be traced back over 6000 years and remains largely unchanged from its original form. It is the same process that was used to create famous sculptures across the globe including the Trafalgar Square Lions and the doors of the Bank of England. This process allows every intricate detail of a sculptorís original but often fragile work to be perfectly recreated in a beautiful material and ensures that their sculpture will last a lifetime.
These new sculptures are just two of 37 exclusive pieces in the Nelson & Forbes 2011/12 collection, created by artists Jonathan Sanders and Sue Maclaurin. They will be available to view on Stand R11 at the Olympia shopping village, are available in galleries nationwide, or can be bought from www.nelsonandforbes.co.uk. The final order date for Christmas directly from Nelson & Forbes is Monday 19th December, individual galleries may vary. For stockist information please call 01442 256290.
