Fabergé Rosebud Egg, 1895
The Society’s new programme at Linton Memorial Hall kicks off on 11 October with an up-to-the-minute assessment of the antiques market from auctioneer and TV antiques expert (Bargain Hunt, Flog It!) Caroline Hawley, who will also give some valuations. Later in the season, you’ll hear about the work of jeweller Carl Fabergé and the less well-known Art Nouveau designer Archibald Knox, see how artists responded to the Industrial Revolution and how fashion has both defined and reflected women’s status over the last 150 years, gain insights into Rococo silver and its collectors, and, at the December event, meet the incarnation of Brodsworth Hall’s Victorian butler!
