Our Current Projects and News
July is the beginning of our quieter period and it's a chance to review what we've been doing and the plans for the run up to the Autumn rush.
The last few months have been mostly taken up with creating the new collection of World War One sculptures and so far they are proving very popular with some nice feedback from our customers. We've also added new boxed items to the crystal collections.
Please look out for the new French and German World War One Soldiers, a new sculpture from the Vimy Ridge Canadian Memorial and a new modern Canadian Soldier.
Hand Crafted Military, Emergency Service and Historical Statues
Ballantynes of Walkerburn started out in 1991 as a sculpting and manufacturing business. We have kept true to our concept and now offer a huge range of hand-made sculptures, statuettes and figurines. We break the our collections into two scales which then sub-divide by interest including Army, Navy, Royal Marine, Special Forces, Historical, American, Police and Fire Service to name just a few. We work with many Regiments, Units, Corps, Forces and Societies to ensure our detail is perfect . Our favourite expression is to say that, "if we haven't got it in stock, we'll make it for you", how cool is that!
Game Animals and Endangered Wildlife Sculpture
Our Wildlife Collection is designed to capture the lifelike spirit and style of the animal or bird. We make endangered species, Tigers, Lions, Elephant, Rhinoceros, Gorillas and Bears. We also manufacture game animals, Deer, Pheasant, Partridge and Grouse. We also have a section covering Birds of Prey, Kestrel, Eagles, Goshawk and Owls. All are made here in Scotland and we offer a variety of finish for the home, office, foyer or studio. All our statuettes are availiable in our three distinctive resin finishes: Bronze, Antique Ivory or Handpainted.
Engraved Crystal Collection
You'll find a superb collection of individually engraved crystal and glass for almost any occasion. We offer a wide selection decanters, glasses, flames and vases which are divided into sections based around whisky, brandy, port, wine and champagne. We offer a free design and set up service, prompt response times and great packaging. We're used to fastballs and try to make sure you're idea is turned into reality in just a couple of days.
Special Bottle Service
The Special Bottle Service offers you a genuine quality sprit or fortified wine, beautifully hand engraved with your own design and text. The finished product turns a simple everyday bottle into a fantastic commemorative gift that is likely to the treasured well beyond its normal value. We have sections displaying Whisky, Brandy, Rum, Champagne, Gin and Vodka and have a wide range of suitable artwork. Fast turnaround is normal and we endeavour to make every bottle a little work of art.
