It makes us unhappy in the extreme to think that our great and wonderful clientele – our beloved Horneteers – should have to rub shoulders with the lower elements when shopping with us in Church Walk.
But it seems that last week, this was sadly the case.
An appeal, good and gentle Hornteers. Please keep your eyes peeled for this lovely jacket…
… which was stolen from our shop last week.
Descriptions and detailed pics have been circulated to the leading auction houses of our great country (indeed, we were indebted to the wonderful team at Christie’s for helping us value and source the garment in question a short while ago.)
It’s the Austro/Hungarian Empire’s Ambassador’s court coat c1911. And we’d very much like it back.
