Sir Samuel Bagster Boulton, 1st Baronet († 27 April 1918)

Samuel was buying in the decade before his decease, with auction pedigrees from Martinetti (November 1907); Sir John Evans (May 1909); W C Hazlitt (July 1909); and private transactions from H. Hoffman (1891) and E J Seltman (1894-1920). Following his stint as Vice-President of the London Chamber of Commerce (1893-1898), he was created a Baronet in 1905. Of his seven children, Harold would inherit the Baronetcy and daughter Mabel, better known to history as Mrs. St. Clair Stobart, would be a leading suffragette and founder of Women’s Sick and Wounded Convoy Corps (WSWCC) that saw action in Serbia (1912) and the Western Front during the Great War.

With an old handwritten coin label & envelope, detail vague and inaccurate but then little was understood about this series when this was written, circa 100 years ago.
