Sotheby Parke Bernet of Los Angeles illustrated their advertisements for an auction of important silver pieces, 30 April and 1 May 1973, with a brilliant color reproduction of the “Achilles” silver-gilt shield made for Frederick Augustus, Duke of York and Albany, by Philip Rundell of London and designed by John Flaxman.
