Wine auction[edit]

Not worthy of comment in the main article, but perhaps of interest to passing researchers, is the frequency with which “Agg-Gardner” is mentioned in Christie’s wine catalogues. He is not the subject of my research, so I haven’t been noting when he bid, sometimes successfully, for Port. E.g., merely because it is the image at which I am now looking, the auction on 26 March 1912, lots 123 and 124 (“Port, 1870 (bought from Osborne) Re-corked by Wells, Bedford”), sold at 88/- per dozen, Agg-Gardener being the under-bidder at 86/-. (My pictures #21325/35-6.) A keen biographer of A-G could spend many days in Christie’s archive noting the previous two(ish) decades of his bidding. JDAWiseman (talk) 21:07, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I’ll add 9 March 1925. But there are many. JDAWiseman (talk) 23:36, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
