Dreaming of a glorious past, and challenged by the intricacy of the superb metalwork of the Celts, late 19th century designers were inspired to create jewellery and objects worthy of a Celtic chieftain’s family. In this lecture we will see some of these beautiful pieces and explore the context in which they were made.
