This will be an opportunity for collectors to acquire new additions, with seventy new portrait miniatures available, prices ranging from £1000. Highlights include enamels, with a magnificent portrait of Frederick Duke of York (fig. 1), in the original presentation frame, probably acquired by his brother George IV in 1827.
