Abigail Chew’s Coral Jewelry


This set of coral jewelry belonged to Abigail Chew, wife of USS Constitution’s War of 1812 purser, Thomas Chew. While away from his family for his naval service, Chew frequently sent gifts home to them as tokens of his affection. It is likely that this set of coral jewelry was one such gift brought home after a long voyage to the Mediterranean.
