This coaster is scratch, stain and heat resistant up to 145 degrees. It has PEFC sustainably sourced hardwood core and comes with an eco-friendly cork base.

Andrew Noel Agnew, a barrister who had inherited the baronetcy and estates of Lochnaw in Galloway, commissioned this painting of his young wife, Gertrude Vernon (1864-1932), in 1892.

Lady Agnew’s direct gaze and informal pose, emphasised by the flowing fabric and lilac sash of her dress, ensure the portrait's striking impact. It was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1893 which made Sargent's name and launched Lady Agnew as a society beauty.

John Singer Sargent was an American artist, considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation" for his evocations of Edwardian era luxury. During his career, he created roughly 900 oil paintings and more than 2,000 watercolours.
