“The Couch of Names” – Jane Eyre and Mr Rochester

Malta, Ohio, is located at the intersection

of US Route 36 and US Route 33 about ten miles north of Sandusky. 

It is a small town with approximately 3,500 people. 

The town’s history has been traced back to the late 1700s when two brothers,

David and George Berkey opened a store selling produce in downtown Malta following the American Revolution. 

In the early 1800s, the brothers started a bakery and tavern. 

The location of the bakery today is on Main Street. 

It was called the Malta Mercantile Company in 1853 when a larger store was built

on Main Street at the intersection of East and North Streets.

In 2003, Ruskin’s Police Department began conducting a series of Online Crime Stoppers searches using their Internet site. 

With names submitted by individuals, investigators look for missing persons in many different states and countries around the world. 

National Center 

The number of people who use this free service to solve crimes is growing each year as more people become aware

that their information may help police solve cases involving abductions, homicides and other crimes . 

Volunteers and other groups also submit names of missing people to police agencies to help find them. 

The National Center for Missing Adults provides a free internet service to submit information about missing adults. 

The National Center is a non-profit organization that works in cooperation with the U.S. Justice Department’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) . 

The National Center’s database contains over three million records .

The term was first used during the 19th century and applied

to Victorian-era jewelry in the form of sets, pendants, brooches and miniature statuettes. 

Designers of these pieces focused on designing wearable works on themes such as allegory or mythology. 

The earliest known use of the term was in 1854, when the dictionary Wit and Humour published

a set of 15 small metal pieces named “mystery miniatures”. 

The first use of the term miniature in reference to jewelry was published by S. W. Singer in 1883. 


The standard size of the pieces was from 2.5 to 3 cm,

which would make the average piece about 4 cm long by 1 cm thick. 

The jewelers worked in different metals and alloys, including sterling silver and gold plate.

In 1840s, small works were made of gold and enamel, using techniques employed by pewtermakers. 

In the 1860s, designers began to use other materials such as steel, brass and ivory as base materials for their miniature works or “jewels”.

According to author Elisabeth Bannister it is widely accepted that mystery miniatures were developed as

a result of a contest launched by Sir John Bowring in 1828. 

The contest was for the design of a “hobby horse”

to be sold to raise funds for the Irish Hospitals Society. 

The prize was 30 guineas (about £1,600 in modern terms) and Bowring offered

a cash prize of £5-a-year if the design won by other than John Webb, 

who was employed by Bowring and had submitted a similar design.

These designs were anonymously submitted in 1829 at Gibbs’s Museum and Sir Richard Phillips’s Sir Walter Scott’s Library in London. 

Twenty-nine designs were exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts between 1832 and 1833 and

they received last year’s attention due to their small size. 

These were the first miniature works to be recognized as “mystery miniatures”.

The number of pieces in the collection is slightly more than two hundred. 

The small size was a result of Bowring’s desire that they be wearable,

thus they are not only decorative items, but also small works of art.

Several sought-after sets of mystery miniatures are known to have been made during the 19th century and sold at auction.
