the TUDOR TUTOR

Your cheeky guide to the dynasty

Does the Jewellery Make the Sitter?

More Tudor goodies, this time meshing an inventory of Katherine Howard’s jewels with the above portrait which is oftentimes labelled as her (and probably dismisssed as such nearly as often). Thanks again to Bendor Grosvenor for indulging our Tudor lust!

It was 1st published for David Starkey’s “Lost Faces” exhibition but today is the 1st time it’s being published online. One thing’s for sure: the items described were to die for.
