Jeff Davis President of the Confederacy - Inventory Number: CON 143 / Sold
Outstanding and historically important, ca. 1860's brooch depicting Jefferson Davis - The President of the Confederacy. A fine piece of jewelry most likely being constructed of a 10k Gold. This brooch houses an original albumen photo of Davis. The reverse retains the original "T-bar" pin and open clasp design. From the personal collection of Tom Gordon Jr. noted second generation political collector and antique dealer. A wonderful piece of civil war jewelry undoubtedly made in very limited numbers for the well-to-do Southerner.
