So Doris Duke



In a few days, this late 12th century Persian pottery tile will be sold through Christie's, Paris, as part of an Islamic art sale which includes Jean-Louis Thau's collection of ancient jewels from Morocco. Don't you think Doris Duke would want to snap it up if she were around today?

Absolutely! Doris Duke had wonderful taste in design (just not wonderful taste in adopted daughers). I love this photograph of her.
