Bangle Bracelet


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Over the crossed flags is superimposed a green enameled wreath which bears a sculpted gold pelican wounding her breast so that her young may feed on her blood. A symbol of Christian charity, the "pelican in her piety" has been associated with the state of Louisiana since 1813. The flags with the seven stars may allude to the flag flown by the Confederate States prior to May 1863.
