This piece of art has been passed down from my great grandmother to my grandmother and eventually to my mom. This piece of art means a lot to my mom because this object was a gift from my great grandfather to my great grandmother before he went off to war. My mother was very close to her grandmother (my great grandmother) and this artifact means a lot to her because it is one of her grandmothers important possessions. Unfortunately my mom’s grandmother and mother are no longer with us so this item is very important to my mother, therefore it is important to me. This family heirloom is very important because it carries a piece of my great grandmother and my grandmother with it. This object is used as a piece of artwork because we keep it on a bookshelf where everyone can see it. My great grandfather came to America around 1940.

Place(s): New York, New Jersey
