Malcolm Forbes Highland Balloon Section For Sale

Bill Hocker - 3May11 9:02AM

In 1989 I was commissioned by Malcolm Forbes' brother to do a balloon section with the men wearing Forbes tartan trews. I looked up my tartans and couldn't find a Forbes tartan and told the brother so. In the mail there arrived shortly a business envelop which when opened revealed the bottom 8 inches of a very well made tie neatly snipped off from the whole.

The seller is Tony Borges in Luxembourg and may be reached at He bought it at the Forbes New York auction in Dec.
