Description

Keep your place safely marked in any book with our bookmark inspired by a painted wrought iron hasp in our Pennsylvania German collection!  This Pennsylvania German hasp with slot for locking loop would have been used to keep safe the contents of a Conestoga wagon toolbox.  The Conestoga wagon was named after the Conestoga River or Township in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and is thought to have been introduced by German settlers.   Pennsylvania Germans were masterworkers in metal.
