Wedding band that belonged to Heinrich and Anna Schwabacher. As part of their preparation to leave Germany following the rise of the Nazi dictatorship in 1933, the ring was sent to friends in Amsterdam for safekeeping. Jewish refugees were not allowed to take valuable property with them when they left the country. This ring and its companion ring, 2005.546.5, were sent later by registered mail to England after the emigration of the Schwabacher's and their daughter, Nelly Rossmann and her son, Michael, to that country.
