"The Trail of Tears" was the forced relocation and movement of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the present-day United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. It has been described as an act of genocide. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while on route to their destinations, and many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.

Lover's Mouth: Georgian high carat gold bracelet circa 1820, the central compartment enclosing a watercolour on ivory miniature of a lover's mouth. Georgian lover's eye portraits are relatively scarce and this is only the second example I have seen of a lover's mouth. The lid of the compartment is engraved with a rose, indicating that the subject within is sub rosa, i.e. it is secret, confidential and not to be discussed. A superb piece redolent with symbolism.
Thanks to Alf, I am now afraid of elevators! (Christmas special...he gets trapped in one with a woman who is trying to get up to the maternity ward to give birth.)
