    Wink A Royal find, for the Royal baby ...

    The style may not be to your taste, but the workmanship is exquisite and the story remarkable. A friend of mine discovered this piece and did the provenance research on it. I've seen it close up and in person, and it really is beautifully made. It's now being made available to an interested collector (for the right price of course!)

    You can read a bit more about the story here. So tell your British friends that an "ashes stealing probable convict has your Queen's Cradle."

    Totally! I think it did take him a few years of research to work out the provenance. Hopefully it goes well in the auction for him.
