It would be very wrong of me not to remind you that there is just a month to go to see this fabulous exhibition of the collection of Sèvres that was acquired by the first Earl of Harwood’s eldest son Edward, Viscount Lascelles (“Beau” Lascelles) in the period after the French Revolution.

The Sèvres factory, which was first started at Vincennes, was a royal factory and some of the pieces on view have royal provenances. It really is worth going along to Harewood House to see both the exhibition and the glorious interiors of the house and as I said I would in my original blog I am going back again within the next month.
