Jewels ForsythForsyth, Hazel. The Cheapside hoard: London’s lost jewels. Philip Wilson, 2013. NK 7301.5.G7

A beautifully illustrated book published to accompany the exhibition running until 27 April at the Museum of London. The hoard of jewellery and other precious items was buried before the Great Fire of London and remained hidden until workmen uncovered it in 1912 when houses built after the fire were being demolished.

London's Lost JewelsEmerald-Carved-Parrott-Forsyth covers the history of Cheapside, jewellery-making and the symbology of the finds and includes many contemporary portraits showing similar items being worn or carried.


A jewelled scent bottle, a watch in an emerald case (a personal favourite), bodkins, fan handles, seal rings and the emerald and diamond salamader brooch used as the emblem of the collection which survived the fire, this hoard is the largest ever discovered.
