Glory of Early White Elephants

Recommended Posts

There was a time when this order was one of the most beautiful orders in the world not only by design, but also by quality of manufacturing… Let’s take a look at pieces that came from this glorious time!

The earliest in this small gallery – made in gold and incrusted with precious stones (Spada Collection).
