Collectors play an important role in the conservation of know-how through their passion for objects specific to certain periods or categories of products. Groupies of perfume bottles know this very well. Their researchs to characterize these objects are also very valuable in understanding these periods.
Anne de Thoisy-Dallem has built up an exceptional collection of powder box, vanities and compacts that invites us to take an interest in powders. I invite you to contemplate some wonders before, hopefully, discovering them in a more rewarding environment.
Thank you and congratulations Anne.
