A brief annotation
The Esclavage Bow is one of the unique items exhibited in the Diamond Fund, a collection of unique jewellery, nuggets of precious metals and gemstones of great historical and artistic value. This type of jewellery was worn on a wide lace band or a black velvet ribbon tied tightly around the neck. It resembled a slave collar, hence the name "esclavage". The bow exhibited in the collection was made in 1764.
