Footnotes

  • John Brogden (1820-1884), was one of Britain's premier jewellers working in the revivalist style, drawing inspiration from archaeological and historical discoveries of the 19th Century.

    Brogden exhibited at world fairs, and won several awards, including a gold medal at the Paris Exhibition Universelle in 1867, and the Légion d'Honneur for "Goldsmiths' work and jewellery in exquisite taste", as well as the gold medal of L'Academie Nationale, Paris.

    This bracelet is a rare and unusual example of his work, and demonstrates Brogden's interest in the Islamic and Middle Eastern world.
