History: Grooming tools were found on both the Nuestra Senora de Atocha (which sank in a hurricane off the coast of Key West, Florida in 1622) and also the 1715 Fleet (Which sank off the east coast of Florida in 1715). The original piece was cast in Gold. It depicts a rounded curve blade topped with a lion. For thousands of years, lions have been used as a symbol of power, courage and nobility, often depicted on coins and jewelry to remind people of a civilization’s, family’s or individual’s status and power.
