To follow up on The Jewellery Editor‘s article on the upcoming Haughton International Fine Art & Antiques Show, which will take place from next October 17 to October 23 at the Park Avenue Armory in Manhattan, New York City, here are some highlights which are simply fascinating and full of reminiscences of times gone by – “sparkling nostalgia”, as I would call it, of unique, one-of-a kind extraordinary pieces.
