An astonishingly luxurious find... a set of 29 Edwardian English champagne or cocktail coupes, Circa 1900s. Beautifully simple in design with deep bowls. As part of their historical provenance, the set was sold by Sotheby’s on 1st November 1991 and some of the glasses retain their lot number stickers.

All profits from the sale of these glasses go to ‘The Plum Layton Charitable Trust’ which was set up in 2010, predominantly to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research. The fund is supporting the work being done at the Hammersmith Hospital and Imperial College under Dr Harpreet Wasan.

Thus far, over £400,000 has been raised and has enabled the Hammersmith to set up a specific unit to investigate why pancreatic cancer does not respond to traditional treatments. Pancreatic cancer kills 7,000 people in the UK every year and, to the vast majority, it is a death sentence. The one chance of recovery is if the doctors are able to operate but this is only possible in 10%-20% of cases
