Bonomi was an engraver who privately made patterns for Victorian Crowns, These were most unusual as the design was engraved incuse rather than raised. The portrait of Queen Victoria was not the most flattering we have ever seen. Of course, the designs were not accepted, but today they bring thousands of pounds from collectors. We believe the secret is time, it changes a lot of things. Our friend in Manchester decided a number of years ago to use the Bonomi design and make some Patina retro patterns of British interest. We believe he made between 50 and 70 pieces of each in Sterling Silver. We bought all that he had left. This is the Australia issue in Matt Proof Sterling Silver. A very limited number is available and they're worth having
