Anne Harbers illustrated lecture on The Superb Silver of Jane Austen’s time

This talk will look at the enticing silver of Jane Austen’s time ( 1775 – 1817) including beautifully engraved patchboxes, decorated snuff boxes designed to fit in the pockets of those smart tight Regency gentlemen’s breeches, and little vinaigrettes, to hold a sweet smelling sponge to overcome the smells of the street.

Anne Harbers lectures in Art History subjects at AGNSW, WEA, and the National Trust.
