3963

original Civil War era Scotch Snuff label by Sweetser Brothers, Boston

Measuring approximately 3 ½ X 4 ¾ this classic old snuff label will be familiar to tobacciana collectors as dating to the 1840s however it is our opinion that this example, though graphically essentially the same as the earlier one, dates in the Civil War era. (see: 1862 Boston Directory) All in excellent condition and yet with good evidence of age and originality, this example has never been applied and remains untrimmed just as it was originally printed and supplied to Sweetser Bros. An especially nice item for the Civil War era tobacco enthusiast.

19th century handcrafted - TIN FUNNEL CAKE MAKER

This neat early funnel cake maker measures approximately 6 1/2 inches in diameter at its mouth, is about 7 1/2 inches deep and has a 5 1/2 inch grip with a finger loop on the opposite edge. It is tinsmithmade from tinned sheet iron with lead soldered seams all commensurate with construction as early as the mid 1800s. While food historians remind us that recipes often predate their current popular names, they generally agree the idea of funnel cakes as we know them today first came into being in Northern Europe sometime before the term funnel cake became the common name for the sweetened fried dough confection . While modern dictionaries and food references generally place the term 'funnel cakes' in the 20th century, culinary evidence confirms the recipe is much older. In this country the sweetened fried dough confection became a popular item around the holidays and were a special favorite at street fairs and fundraisers. All in pleasing original condition, this funnel cake maker is suitable for use and will fit well as a country kitchen accessory or in a Civil War era cooking or sanitary fair grouping.

4096

earlier to mid 1800s South Carolina Barrier Islands – BEADED BAG

A bit of a conundrum when we acquired this wonderful remnant of early Black Americana because we knew but little of the category yet, thankfully, we learned relatively early on to trust our judgment when presented with a special opportunity. The pattern design of this beaded bag and the fact that the piece came out in the coastal Old South indicated a Sea Islands or Barrier Island plantation origin. Set aside in our personal accumulation, we have enjoyed the piece and now it is time make it available as we clear away some of the fruits of our years of search. (Some of you may enjoy MaineLegacy.com a display from our personal Civil War collection.) Our illustrations will do best to describe this wonderful vintage glass beaded bag, adding only that it measures approximately 6 1/2 X 7 1/4 inches including the fringe with pattern on both sides, cotton draw string and a silk lining. The bag is entirely original with good evidence of age and period use. The glass beaded body and fringe remain solid and the original beige silk lining remains intact but with some splitting and tenderness. Buy with confidence! All direct sales are backed by no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased ! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item is being returned per these previsions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly.
