Coif and headpiece on display at Hever Castle in Kent. It is said to have been made and embroidered by Anne Boleyn, although it looks more Elizabethan to me.

This is the first love token King Henry VIII gave to Anne Boleyn, which she kept until her death. It is a tiny gold dog whistle with a salt spoon, earpick and toothpick (he was known for his hygeine!). When Anne gave it to her jailer shortly before her execution she pointed out that the design is of a serpent adding "and thus he (Henry) proved ever unto me". It's now kept at Chequers, the Prime Minister's country residence.
