- We have Laura and Kingsmill Marrs to thank for one of the most important collections of Ancient Egyptian jewellery now held at the Worcester Art Museum in Massachussetts.
- And we have Artal-Isbrand, Lacovara and Markowitz to thank for the book Jewels of the Nile which is an erudite and informative tome to accompany the exhibition of the same name.
- During the early C20th, advised by Howard Carter himself, Mr & Mrs Marrs from their white clapboard mansion set out on travels to amass an impressive haul of pharaonic jewels.
- This exhibition catalogue is enriched with colour illustrations from the museum as well as essays by the exhibition’s curators on the history of ancient Egypt.
