Unwind in style and fix a drink from Francois-Xavier Lalanne’s larger-than-life Grasshopper. The bar, made of Sevres porcelain and polished brass, is a distinctive mixture of high design and household utility. Its only twin was gifted to Queen Elizabeth II and remains in her personal collection today. Lalanne’s Sauterelle will be offered in our Important Design sale on 24 May.
