Site of the Week. Stalking the Belle Epoque

Joseph Crisalli is in search of beauty, elegance and grace, qualities which are difficult to find in this crass modern era.  This Punch and Judy man, who lives with his cute terrier, Bertram Wooster, and his puppet, Mr Punch, has made it his mission to share something beautiful from past eras every day on his wonderful blog.

Today he has a post about the beautiful Queen Alexandra's Faberge knife. This is a fine example of his posts, which always transport one to elegant past eras.

Thank you very much, Viola. Your site is quite a treat. I'm glad we're out there reminding people of all of the exceptional artistry which helped shape the modern world (the good parts of it, anyway). Take care! Joseph
