A 19th century wedding band in unusually good condition, made by Bailey Banks & Biddle-- one of the finest and oldest American jewelers. The company was founded in 1832, and produced extremely high quality jewelry through the mid 20th century. They designed the United States Great Seal and Purple Heart medal that remain in use today. An inscription inside the band reads " P.J.W. to M.C.R.P. Apl. 27th 1888."
