Tiffany Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet with African-American motif


This is a wonderful charm bracelet with three charms on it made in sterling silver and marked by Tiffany and Company. The Tiffany markings are “TIFFANY &Co 4186 M STERLING SILVER”. This bracelet is also hand engraved on the inside “Dec, 25th 1875”. The Tiffany date letter “M” is consistent with the date of the inscription.
The outer decorative motif is that of cross tied reeds. This bracelet is ovoid in shape and is approximately 2 11/16″ by 2 1/4″.
The three charms that are soldered onto this bracelet include a bale of cotton that has the numbers/date 1885 enameled in blue enamel on it, a smiling black face (possibly Sunny South) and a tag that has three initials hand engraved into it. The three initials are “WHJ”. It has been suggested that this charm is to simulate the Emancipation Proclamation. All three charms are sterling silver, but none of the three have any markings. The reverse of the Sunny South face is plain, the reverse of the Emancipation Proclamation is a style of engine turning and the bail of cotton is 3 dimensional.
