Re: Jamaica:1687 - Coat of Arms?

Well my advice would be to get someone who specialises in this sort of thing and get confirmation its genuine.......... if it is you better get it insured if you havent already

I havent seen anything like that before. A lovely thing to have.

Hello Barton68,
This is an unbelievable coincidence.
I too have a Jamaican wig comb case with 2 combs, dated 1687.
There is only one other known of this date and it's in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
I have been researching this work for about 12 years and am collaborating with a colleague (Jen Cruse, who has published 2 articles so far), to publish the definative article, hopefully in 2013.
I can tell you an awful lot about this object and the related boxes, caskets and table cabinets, if you are interested.
One thing that I am sure will interest you is that a 1673 case and 2 combs sold in Bonhams Bond Street on 21st November for 23,750.( Lot 9 Fine English Furniture Sale No 20027).
It would be of great assistance to our research to be able to record, measure and photograph, your example. Would you be agreeable to this?
The exciting aspect from our point of view is that 1687 marks the beginning of the "second period" in the production of these objects. which began in 1671 and continued until 1685,(end of "First Period").
No objects have yet been found for 1686, and the second period then continued from 1687 until 1692, when Port Royal suffered a massive earthquake and was subsequently abandoned.
1687 is an important year, and it would be so helpful for us to be able to study the engraving style and subject matter of your case and combs, in order to tie in with what knowledge we already have,
Sorry for pedantry and content, but you really have something rather important, and it deserves be included in the project.
Kind regards,
Peter
