Harewood antiques sale to aid charities
9:00am Tuesday 26th February 2013 in Local news
Suffragette jewellery will be among the items for sale at a Luxury Antiques and Fine Art Fair at Harewood in March.
The fair, from March 1 to March 3, will also feature two green glasses which are believed to have belonged to Charles Dickens.
The suffragette jewellery, which is described as “exquisite” has been acquired from a family in Yorkshire, where the movement was strong. The pieces are set with green, white and violet precious and semi-precious stones – signifying the ‘Give Women the Vote’ campaign.
The Bristol green glasses, believed to have belonged to Charles Dickens, were originally sold with other belongings from the author’s Gadds Hill home.
Other items for sale will include a Charles II porringer dating back to 1673, and original Disney illustrations. The event, which is organised by the Antique Dealers Fair Ltd, will bring together around 30 expert exhibitors.
It will also raise money for two charities – the homeless charity St George’s Crypt in Leeds and the Art Fund.
