Title

Susan B. Anthony Gavel, Smithsonian Series. [Circa 1970-1975]

Description

Faux-ivory gavel with three sterling silver bands, and a turned rosewood handle and knop end. The display box originally sold with the gavel was missing at the time of purchase.

The engraved inscriptions on both flat hammer ends read: "Nat'l Woman Suffrage Ass'n March 25th 1888" and "Order is Heavens first Law."

This gavel is a replica of the one given to Susan B. Anthony at the first convention of the International Council of Women in Washington, D.C. from March 25th to April 1, 1888, which was assembled by Anthony and other leaders of the National Woman Suffrage Association. The original gavel is in the National Museum of American History.
