The Kash­mira Bul­sara Col­lec­tion

Country Life Every Week - - Focus On The Visual Arts -

These minia­ture master­pieces are prime ex­am­ples of the jew­eller’s art and when the ex­cep­tional pri­vate col­lec­tion of 48 of them goes on dis­play at the V&A next year, they will be a high­light of the refurbished jew­ellery gal­leries. The col­lec­tion was formed by Kash­mira Bul­sara, the sis­ter of the late Fred­die Mer­cury, lead singer of Queen, as a spe­cial trib­ute to his love of beau­ti­ful things. Fred­die was an ac­com­plished artist as well as an out­stand­ing mu­si­cian and would no doubt have taken great joy in these lovely ob­jects and the fact that the pub­lic will soon be able to en­joy them.

The van­ity cases are on dis­play at Sym­bolic & Chase, 30, Old Bond Street, Lon­don W1, dur­ing Oc­to­ber.

A Kind of Magic: Art Deco Van­ity Cases, the Kash­mira Bul­sara Col­lec­tion by Sarah Huewil­liams and Peter Ed­wards, is pub­lished by Uni­corn Press (£40)
