    Description

    Adams & Jefferson: Jugate Memorial Ribbon. Although Adams and Jefferson belonged to different political parties, they served as President and Vice President in 1797-1801. There are no Adams & Jefferson jugates from this period, but jugate ribbons were produced when the pair died hours apart on the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1826. This is rightly considered one of the greatest coincidences in American history. This 7" x 1 1/2" silk ribbon is beautifully matted and framed. There is some separation at two folds, not affecting the portraits or design. This is a fine display piece for two of the Founding Fathers and charter members of the American Pantheon.
