Art History Museum
Recently I discovered in the attic of our family home a chest containing a number of items that seem to have belonged to my great grandmother. Clearly, I am the first to have seen the contents since the chest was stored there goodness knows when.
One item interests me in particular. It is a bizarre and quite disturbing piece of jewellery wrapped in a soft black cloth in a small box along with a number of documents and what looks like pages from a diary.
I have not sent you the article in question as it seems it might be very valuable but I have enclosed a photograph of it. Please, would the museum be able to examine the piece? I would be grateful for your expert opinion.
