Dear HOBAC, what a brilliant shot! I've never seen that one before. I have a very similar lamp from the 1940's, sadly not a pair.

I like your new banner. Is that your place? It's very stylish anyway.

And thank you for your lovely comments the other day, much appreciated xx

the mirror doesn't lie, nor the camera.

What a neat encapsulation of the Duchess's image, figuratively and literally speaking
