How beautiful is this baby born en caul.
Did you know that It was thought that children born with the caul would never die of drowning, and so made good sailors.
In Victorian times it was not unheard of for cauls to fetch good prices at auction, purchased by anxious seafarers wishing to gain protection.
It was also thought to be an indicator that a child would have ‘second sight’, or supernatural powers of premonition.
