Artifact Description

This decorative handle belonging to a dresser drawer, is one of the many miscellaneous items recovered from the SS Republic shipwreck. From where it came, and to whom it belonged, one cannot be certain. And yet, it withstood the test of time in the harsh saltwater environment that is especially corrosive to metals. Perhaps the item once adorned the Captain's dresser in his stately sleeping quarters on the ship; or possibly had been a companion to a piece of furniture, specially ordered by a passenger and shipped among the cargo bound for a New Orleans' residence.
