Katie basically bought this strange 19th c. Scottish glazed ceramic potato flask from Cove Landing for Peter’s birthday. It is in the form of a potato but as gallery co-proprietor Angus Wilkie explained, some people today seem to imagine it is what your liver looks like when you have experienced too much out of the flask!

And I occurred to catch fashion designer and 2019 Young Collectors Night time honorary chair Zac Posen, who selected a wonderful brooch from Kentshire. He looked dashing as often with a bejeweled lapel, versus the booth’s fashionable backdrop of Scalamandre’s typical Zebras wallpaper.
From c. 1945, the brooch is of statement earning size with a floral spray of amethyst and citrines.
