Artifact
Pair of Indian Silver Earrings
Maine State Museum, Artifact

Pair of Indian trade silver earrings with wire loops. The earrings are diamond-shaped, with scalloped edges. The interior is pierced and stamped, also in a diamond formation. The maker's stamp, with initials, appears in the center. From the bottom of the diamond dangles a triangular piece, also stamped with the same initials at the apex and incised in a teardrop shape through the center. The bottom edge is shaped with three small scallops, set apart. Made by Canadian silversmiths for use and wear by Maine/Maritime Province Indians. Tag says Rene Blache 1771-1820.

British Naval and Merchant Telescope, ca. 1850
Maine Historical Society, Still Image

Elizabeth Aageson of Portland owned this telescope, which was made in London, and that has a reference guide of different British merchant signal flags. Merchant ships flew signal flags representing their owners. Aageson loaned the telescope to the Navy's World War I campaign "Eyes for the Navy." The Navy asked for telescopes, binoculars, sextants and chronometers to help with the war effort. Attached to the telescope is a metal tag that reads "Donated to U.S.N. by Miss Elizabeth Aageson 436 St. John Street Portland Me. 1808.
