CommentAt home with the family.
Sold by Christie as believed Taylor. Starling was the ship who brought the port to England. All those ships have names after birds. This is believed to be bottled by Hunter’s of Bury St. Edmunds and re-corked by Hunter & Oliver around 1934. This is Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Vintage.
