Title

Liberty Bell watch fob. [1915]

Description

Brass watch fob shaped like the Liberty Bell (no attached strap). On the back are the words "Woman's Liberty Bell-Justice-Equality 1915 Pennsylvania."

This piece was created during the Pennsylvania Liberty Bell Campaign to pass a state suffrage referendum in 1915. Suffragists forged a replica of the Liberty Bell, known as the Justice Bell. The Justice Bell toured Pennsylvania with its clapper chained to its side. The clapper would not ring until women won the vote.
