Wine/Value of the box

Question
David
I saw a posting about a gift set BP Rothschild. Medoc and Graves but wine was too old and most likely not any good. I however have the box in our antique store. Any idea what that's worth?

Answer
Hi Russell,

Sorry but I can't be too optimistic about selling your box as I recently researched eBay UK on the subject of wine boxes because I have had a clear-out of my cellar and wanted to get rid of about 20 old OWCs of decent Bordeaux and Vintage Port. I was surprised at the huge range that merchants were offering to sell for tuppence (UK slang for next to nothing!) that I didn't see the point of trying as they're bulky things that you can't drop in the mail.

But perhaps there's more demand in the US? Try it but don't expect to get much.

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
