    A chance discovery in 19th century Colmar, France, unveiled a precious hoard of medieval
    jewellery and coins hidden in the wall of a confectioner's shop. This treasure - the Colmar
    Treasure - is not only a beautiful collection, but a personal one. The evolution in taste, fluctuation
    in worth and gentle wear of the metal contents all bring their anonymous owner to life, and
    make them that much more elusive. The cache is thought to have been concealed by a Jewish
    family prior to the outbreak of the Plague in 1348, when Jews were terribly persecuted. This
    exquisite volume, published to accompany an exhibition at The Met Cloisters, examines Jewish
    legacy through the lens of the Colmar Treasure, shedding light on the work, homes, worship and
    values of its owners.
