The forthcoming May auction features some wonderful Georgian jewellery.

Romantic Period Jewellery is usually mourning a lost love or celebrating a new one, so for hopeless romantics and lovers of antique jewellery, this is a sale not to be missed!”

…Lalique is the fairest of them all! The delightful, if a little tarnished, mirror was bought in to us by a man who had found it back in the 1970s without realising how rare it was. The unusual bronze mirror by Rene Lalique was cast with the three graces and sold for a hammer of £7,200 (plus premium)
