Gorgeous!  I was up at Broadfield House last week and just seeing the cameo collection was breathtaking.  Such amazing work goes into these pieces.

quote...................."yes it did , 20k  hammer".     So the buyer probably had to pay another 2500 - 3000 commission on top :o.....no wonder you don't see any down-at-heel acutioneers.
But like your plate Peter, very nice.

HI ,
           Fielding are one of the more reasonable chargers , 17 1/2 % + VAT , 21% all in so 24,200 all in ,in a London saleroom at 20k hammer it would have cost 26k all in , still nice work if you can get it  lol

cheers ,
         Peter.
