Jacobite, Stuart & Scottish Applied Arts

Jacobite, Stuart & Scottish Applied Arts


2015 marked the 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite uprising – an event that would revive the spirit and vision of the Jacobites and see the rise of one of Scotland’s most famous historical figures - Charles Edward Stuart, ‘The Bonnie Prince’. In commemoration Lyon & Turnbull were pleased to hold the inaugural Jacobite Sale - a specialist auction that showcased the cross section of the arts of the period that played such an important role within the Jacobite movement; from the traditional portraits, miniatures, fine silver, antique arms and rare manuscripts to the romantic and provoking relics of the rebellion and people within.
