NEWSFLASH - JULY 1, 2007

HK House of Peers Spring/Summer US and UK Charity Raffle
Winners
 

The HK House of Peers conducted a charity raffle featuring three (3) prototypes generously donated by Harmony Ball Company. HOP is grateful to the Loopy Ladies at the Clothes Rail for helping spread the word to collectors across the pond! HOP has enlisted the assistance of Hannah Witkowska to serve as the UK point person. Hannah volunteered to collect UK cheques and transfer the purchase information to the HOP Charity Coordinator in the US, so that raffle purchases from UK collectors were pooled with those in the US.

There was three (3) prizes in the raffle. The first name drawn got first choice at these prototypes, the second name got second choice, and the third name took the last available piece. The drawing occured at the first appearance of Peter Calvesbert for "The #1 Merryfields Tour" in Warwick, New York, on August 4, 2007.

Big Gulp

This is a solid-body prototype of a Treasure Jest which will be released in June 2007. Carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert, he may have taken snakes' unusual digestion to the extreme! This snake has swallowed the elephant. The worldwide edition size of 200 makes this a hard-to-find piece! The released version is a box, not solid-bodied.

Holy Smoke (Cigar Prototype)

Holy Smoke

This is the only prototype of the 2006 Annual Santa piece with the special cigar version! This is one way to get this variation!

This Mortal Coil

This piece is an unreleased Artist Master. It is based on Peter's nautilus Treasure Jest, but is solid-bodied and cast using a bronze resin rather than a marble resin.
