Inventory of Catherine Howard's jewels online

The Art History News blog has published the full transcribed inventory of Catherine Howard's jewels, from the manuscript in the British Library. The transcription was done by Tudor historian Alasdair Hawkyard and compiled by Nicholas Bristowe, who was clerk of the King's wardrobes.

The list was first published in the catalog for the exhibit Lost Faces: Identity & Discovery in Royal Tudor Portraiture, and is now available online for the first time.

Researchers hope that the descriptions of the jewelry will help to authenticate the alleged portrait of Catherine Howard, which has yet to be proven to depict the Queen.
