Part of the Vestment collection at the Anglo-Catholic Saint Mary's Church, Upper Froyle, Hampshire, England. The majority of the items were collected by Sir Hubert Miller (a past Lord of the Manor), whilst he stayed in Italy. The collection numbers over three hundred items of Vestments and Church Furnishings, large portions of which date from the 18th-Century or earlier.

One wonders when this magnificent Tiara will be worn again.
It is the oldest surviving Papal Tiara and dates from the 16th-Century.
It has not been worn for Centuries by Popes,
but is used to Crown a Statue of Saint Peter, annually.
