Geoffrey Munn is a jewellery specialist, historian and writer but is probably best known as a television presenter on the BBC Antiques Roadshow. His first and only permanent position has been with the court jewellers Wartski which he joined at 19. It is from this old established firm that his expertise in art and antiques is derived and his foremost specialty is nineteenth century jewellery and especially the work of the famous Russian goldsmith Carl Fabergé. Geoffrey has written a history of his hometown called “Southwold-An Earthly Paradise” and through his researches for this book he was able to expand on the history of JMW Turner, Edward Lear and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He has also written for The Times on Victorian funerary sculpture when he reattributed an anonymous tomb to the famous painter Edward Burne Jones.
