    DESCRIPTION

    American political contests are currently dominated by two political parties: Republicans and Democrats. These parties are often known by two popular icons that have been used since the 19th Century, the elephant and the donkey.

    The Republican Party (also known as the GOP or Grand Old Party) formed in 1854, and in 1860 Abraham Lincoln became its first member elected to the White House. During the American Civil War, 'seeing the elephant' was a soldiers' expression for experiencing combat, and a travelers' idiom for 'gaining experience of the world at a significant cost'...both good and bad. The elephant did not become known as a Republican symbol until 1874, when famous political cartoonist Thomas Nast used it to refer to the Republicans in a zoo-themed illustration.

    Our tiny elephant charm is cast in 19ga .925 sterling silver, with a 'Stars and Stripes' design on front. For custom necklace or bracelet arrangements, the top features a cast 2.6mm (1.25mm inner diameter) closed jump ring holding a 5mm 20ga closed jump ring.

    Whether you string this by itself on a delicate chain, or combine with other charms, make your own patriotic statement today!
