Jane Austen Artifacts at the Morgan Library and in England

“Likenesses of Jane Austen, as well as objects that passed through her family’s hands, are emerging from storage with fanfare and traveling widely. In the past year, Austen heirlooms on the move have included a tiny 1869 watercolor portrait, which sold to a private collector for $270,000 at Sotheby’s in London, and a turquoise ring owned by Austen, which Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton, England, bought from the singer Kelly Clarkson for about $250,000.” (via NYTimes.com)
