Bow Tie of the New England Historic Genealogical Society
Made exclusively for NEHGS and AmericanAncestors.org by the Andover Shop from pure silk woven in England, this beautiful bowtie was handmade in the United States. It features the central design element of the Society’s historic seal: a divine hand emerging through clouds amidst rays of light holding an open book or text. The seal also features a pine tree, which is echoed here in pine green silk. Designed by Horatio Gates Somerby in 1845, the NEHGS seal features the motto “in memoriam majorum.”
Green with white embroidery; pointed tips; self-tie, adjustable 13 ¾’’ to 18’’.
