The Richmond Collection was one of the finest collections of English needlework assembled in the 20th Century, started in 1907 by Sir Frederick Richmond, the chairman of Harvey Nichols and Debenhams department stores. Among other treasures, it included the purse that had belonged to Admiral Sir William Penn, father of the founder of Pennsylvania. On his death, the collection was divided between his two children and gradually sold in a series of auctions in London at Christie's in 1987 and 2001 and at Bonhams in 2011.
