Harry Fane is showing, amongst other divine objects, a Verdura Wrapped Heart brooch, which was originally designed in 1941 by the New York-based Italian duke as a commission from Hollywood actor Tyrone Power for his wife Annabella. The design, in berry-like cabochon rubies all bound up in knots of diamond and gold ribbon, is one of the late designer’s most enduring pieces.
