A year after the opening of the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Galleries at the V&A and the Boudoir Cabinet at the Wallace Collection, both museums are celebrating the art of the gold box in 18th- and 19th-century Europe. Leading international experts will speak on different centres of production including Paris, Geneva, Hanau, Berlin, Dresden, St Petersburg and London. Papers will illustrate design sources for boxes, diplomatic gifts, the challenge of recognizing fakes and the leading collections assembled by monarchs and bankers.
