    Description

    [Cyrus Field]. Transatlantic Cable Souvenir Bracelet. Most unusual 6 1/4" 14K gold bracelet comprised of eight "links" each with a 5/8" section of the transatlantic cable installed in 1858. Excellent condition... the first in this format we have seen. No documentation accompanies this piece, but we feel confident in the attribution. The bracelet was consigned along with lots 43564 through 43569 in this auction as well as several large archives belonging to Confederate provost marshal Cornelius Boyle previously sold in Manuscripts Auction 6182. This bracelet descended through multiple generations to our present consignor.
