'A Particularly British Fascination: the Anglo-Sèvres Affair'
By Errol Manners, FSA. Alongside a private view of the Judith Howard Collection
With the Wallace Collection in London, the Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor and the inestimable collection of Her Majesty the Queen, we are fortunate in England in having the world's finest collections of Sèvres porcelain. This talk will look at how this came about and how Judith Howard comes in a long line of British scholars of Sèvres porcelain and has earned herself a place in this great collecting Pantheon.
