One of our most valuable pieces

Thank you to Bonhams International Auctioneers for their donated appraisal of the Prescott House contents. Today's lecture, Jewels of Prescott, by Amy Corcoran, Director of New England for Bonham, featured some of our most interesting treasures. That was followed with a lecture by Caroline Morrissey, Senior Specialist for Bonhams' US Jewelry Department, who talked about the use of pearls throughout time.
