During Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England's visit to Williamsburg in 1957 to commemorate the 350th anniversary of Jamestown settlement, she brought an incredible gift for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation - a stunning jewelry box, or "casket" made in Mexico, dating to 1660-1710. This jewelry box is a multicultural object representing the intersection of Asian, Mexican, and European art in New Spain around the turn of the 18th century.
