Stuart Crystal slide bracelet Circa late 1600s An historically important late 17th century piece of jewelry, a bracelet of Stuart crystal slides recording a family history of betrothals and deaths. The seven gold slides, by the same hand, are gold, decorated with various ciphers and devices under rock crystal, threaded onto black ribbon and set to a gold clasp with skull device. It is rare for a bracelet of this type to have survived intact - most have been separated over the centuries.

c. 1868 Heavy Ivory Silk Faille with Chenille Fringe Wedding Gown. Alonzo H. Wood didn't know if he would survive the Civil War but he kept looking at the beautiful daguerreotype of his lady love in Boston. He knew if he made it home alive, he would ask her to marry him. He only hoped that she had waited for him. She did. And this is the gown she wore to their wedding in 1868.
