Thanksgiving Greetings!

Thanksgiving is almost upon us! It’s that time of year when the anticipation of Christmas begins growing, we start searching for unique presents and our inner glutton can come out to play, not only for roast turkey, pumpkin pie, ginger bread, marzipan and cinnamon spiced hot chocolate, but for the opulent and decorative arts too; sparkling Swarovski crystals and glittering sequins, sumptuous hand dyed silks and ornate hand beading - all that is decadent, indulgent and wonderfully autumnal.   

To celebrate this festive time of year we are displaying our ‘Autumn Fairy’ Costume Maquette, recreated from the ballet Cinderella. 

A highly decorative and glamorous tutu made entirely by hand, it has an appliqu├ęd skirt and bodice encrusted with a combination of Swarovski crystals, seed pearls and very rare and delicate original 1920’s sequins that glint through from the top layer of lilac and green tinted silk tulle. A miniature work of art that would make the most unique and desirable gift of all.


 Have a happy Thanksgiving!
