Footnotes

  • Exhibited at the International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery, Goldsmith's Hall, 26th October - 2nd December 1961. See catalogue of the same name, published by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in association with the Victoria and Albert Museum, no 612A.

    The use of rough crystals in Sah's designs of the 1930s is of partcular note as this is not usually associated with jewellery until the 1960s. In 1931 she designed a choker with a large emerald crystal as the centrepiece. This was also exhibited at the Goldsmith's Hall and later owned by the sculpress Mitzi Cunliffe (designer of the Bafta Mask). It sold at Bonhams in April 2006 for £31,200.
