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". It's now kept at Chequers, the Prime Minister's country residence.
