#1

Hello Everybody, Our beautiful Topkapi Palace treasures will be on
display in an exhibition: Palace of Gold & Light: Treasures from the
Topkapi, Istanbul. In Washington DC: March 1 - June 15, 2000. San
Diego Museum of Art: July 14 - September 24, 2000. Museum of Art in
Fort Lauderdale, Florida: October 15, 2000 - January 14, 2001. If you
are around these areas I advise you to see the exhibition. The
treasury of Topkapi Palace has always facinated me since I was a
child. It still does. If you have the opportunity to see it I would
like to hear your views. Kind regards from Istanbul, Turkey

I had the wonderful fortune of visiting the Topkapi Palace in 1973.
If you have any interest at all in gems and goldwork this is not a
show you should miss. I can say I was staggered by the quantities and
sizes of many of the I don’t know what they are bringing
to the USA because the collection was too vast. My advice is don’t
miss this one! Norman
