Finnish Jewellery 1600-2009

It’s clear from the title of this exhibition that it has large ambitions, stretching from the Renaissance to the present day. As the introductory wall text puts it, ‘Over the centuries, Finnish craftsmen were able to learn their trade and practice it in neighbouring countries.

But the text is a must-read for every collector, whether or not they know or care about the work itself.
