Charles I Enamel Locket

Collecting is all about historical archiving, keeping these pieces safe for the future and letting as many people learn about them as possible. In this case, I think Barbara Robbins has a wonderful and important piece on display that we can all learn from:

“Here is a locket of Charles 1st I bought in the last year.  The photo shows a little glare on the blue enamel, but the enamel is pristine… the pearl was a later addition, and remember, the white spots on the enamel are not damage, but glare.”
