Richard Gardner Antiques will be mounting an exhibition of what is considered to be one of the world's greatest collections of antique dressing, vanity and travelling cases from Tuesday 1 September - Saturday 3 October, 2015 at their Chichester showrooms. - Included will be examples by Asprey, Garrard, Aucoc, Jenner & Knewstub, Thornhill, West, Wilson & Co, Edwards, Leuchars and others.

Rare cases will include the Spencer Churchill vanity case by Garrard, commissioned in 1844 for Jane, Duchess of Marlborough, the great-grandmother of Sir Winston Churchill.

The wedding case of the Duke and Duchess of Montpensier by Aucoc, which was a gift from King Louis Philippe of France to his son, Antoine d’Orleans on the occasion of his marriage to Infanta Maria Luisa Fernanda, sister of the Spanish Queen Isabella II on the 10th October 1846.



An extensive travelling case by Thornhill with silver fittings and fitted with the arms of Davalos of Castile, Marques del Vasto and Marques Pescuera.



A truly outstanding Jenner and Knewstub case with exceptionally fine engraved work to the case and its contents, which has to be seen to be appreciated.
