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 toborges@pt.lu. He bought it at the Forbes New York auction in Dec.
