    When Caroline Walter of Freiburg, Germany died at the age of 16, her sister Selma had a sculptor cast a life size sculpture for the gravestone. Every morning since Caroline's funeral, a fresh flower was found tucked in the crook of the arm, and still is to this day. Nobody knows who leaves it. Every single morning. Except Caroline died in 1867. For 145 years, someone has been leaving flowers. Now that's devotion!

The band is set in rubies, the "E" contains 6 diamonds set in a blue enamel "R". A pearl is also seen. The hinge opens to reveal an enamel portrait of the queen c. 1575, Also that of an unnamed woman. The costume of the woman suggests it may be Edwardian and that of her mother, Anne Boleyn.


    Clarissa Field of Northfield, Massachusetts, was born blind in 1765. This doll was made for her and she fancifully named it Bangwell Putt. Bangwell lacks facial features but her ten carefully constructed fingers suggest the importance of touch in Clarissa's world. Bangwell has a homespun body and is dressed in 18th century fashion, including corset. Clarissa kept Bangwell until she died in her eighties. Bangwell Putt is thought to be the oldest surviving rag doll in North America. 15.25in tall
