"Life, liberty and the pursuit of history" Magnet

Regular price $ 4.99

Our rallying cry, "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history," surrounds a wood carving in the collection of the New Port Historical Society. The Society attributes the carving to Alexander Swasey (1820-1860), boat builder, and explains that it is made of mixed woods, paint, and gilt. The carving includes an eagle, shield, the seal of the United States, Lady Liberty with pole and cap, canon and canon balls, a cornucopia with tobacco leaves, and sheaves of grain.

The carving is in the collection of the Newport Historical Society in Newport, Rhode Island, where this carving is on display. It is used under license.

The magnet is thin and flexible, and sized 3"H x 2.5"W. 

This same design is also available as a sticker of the same size. As you can see from the photo with both the sticker and the magnet side by side, the sticker and the label look the same from the front; the magnet is only slightly thicker than the sticker. We are currently taking pre-orders for a version of this image on a t-shirt and it will soon be available as a mug. Sign up for The History List Insider to be notified when these are available.

→ Most orders ship within 24 - 48 hours. Magnets and stickers ship free in the US.
