The Tudor Rose

Elizabeth I. By Richard Burchett. Oil on panel, 1850’s.

1640, England. Gold and enamel. The Order of the Garter was founded by Edward III in 1348 and is the oldest order of chivalry in Europe. The collar, introduced by Henry VIII, consists of 26 Tudor roses within blue garters, with an image of St George killing the dragon hanging by a gold tassel. The image is known as the 'Greater George', while the badge shown here is called the 'Lesser George'.

Henry VIII's first love token to Anne Boleyn. This is the first love token King Henry VIII gave to Anne Boleyn, which she kept until her death. It is a tiny gold dog whistle with a salt spoon, earpick and toothpick (he was known for his hygeine!). When Anne gave it to her jailer shortly before her execution she pointed out that the design is of a serpent adding "and thus he (Henry) proved ever unto me".
