Our festive ornament replicates the look of Martha’s beloved dove brooch.

Martha Washington understood her role as a national figure and the meaning conveyed by her personal appearance. She owned a seed pearl pin that was likely one of the "pearl pins and earrings for Mrs. Washington" purchased from New York jeweler Mr. M. Roberts on December 5, 1789. Seed pearls achieved great popularity in federal America. Mrs. Washington's choice of the dove-shaped pin may have been a declaration of her hope for the future peace and prosperity of the new nation.

This ornament is adorned with faux pearls on a gold metal frame with a red ribbon for hanging. It measures 3" by 3 ½" and is presented in a gold keepsake display box.
