Reviews

That famous jewelry firm is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a newly published and lavishly illustrated history written by managing director Geoffrey Munn (Antiques Roadshow). It was never a big creator of jewelry, instead making its reputation by buying and selling the best available on the world market. -- Patricia Treble MacLean's, June 27, 2015
