Rare Commemorative ‘The Ninetieth Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother 4th August 1990’ Porcelain Decanter from Arthur Bell & Sons. Arthur Bell and Sons grew steadily through the 19th and 20th centuries, concentrating mainly on its home market. So successful was this strategy that by the late 1970s it was commanding a staggering 35% of the UK blended Scotch whisky market. Much of this success is due to the work in the late 1960s of then chief executive, Raymond Miquel, a hardnosed Scottish businessman who slashed costs and improved productivity, and in the process made Bell’s Scotch whisky a household name.

The figurines have also been offered along with Red Rose Tea since 1967.
