Inexpensive fashionable accessories of the early 20th century, they are now offered in every quarterly Fine Art Sale and we have become well known to bidders as a source of this alluring, auspicious material.Amber is included in both our fortnightly Antique & Collectors Sales and our quarterly Fine Art Sales.
