Post Lot Text
Formerly the property of Louise Beckingham, known as 'Tiny' to her friends and family. According to family tradition the brooch once formed part of a tiara, which was worn at the wedding in 1923 of Louise's friend Lady Elizabeth-Bowes Lyon to Albert, Duke of York - later HM George VI. Louise married Dr Victor Goodman, a successful dentist with a chain of practices, and attended many royal occasions throughout her life.
