4157

antique KNIFE / BONE SAW combination

Identified in earlier Civil War collector references as a surgeon’s amputation knife, today’s collectors generally recognize the style as one intended primarily for use by butchers in their work with cattle. The fact that the type has appeared in better private and respected museum field hospital equipment displays (old Gettysburg Visitor Center collection) leaves a place for these combination knife /saw instruments in quality Civil War era collections. Frankly one should not be surprised if such a thing had been selected by the resourceful Civil War army field surgeon. (There is an example of such used by a Maine surgeon in the Maine Historical Society Civil War collection.) This example measures approximately 18 ½ inches in total length with a 12 inch blade. This knife remains in excellent condition but with eye appealing evidence of age, period use and originality. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!!

Pat. July 1862 antique WALL FRAME

An attractive original Patent JULY 1862 wall frame measuring approximately 4 ¾ X 6 inches with a 2 X 3 1/8 viewing area, this frame is made of a pressed pasteboard material with a heavy lacquer finish. The frame is designed to slip a CDV or tintype in behind the glass through a slot in the paper backing. All in nice condition as you can see the original paper backing is thin and tended however and will require careful handling (maybe even reinforcement) when mounting a photograph. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !

period Southern Sympathizer Satirical HAND BILL

Offered here with some age staining and a bit dog eared just the way we found it, is this scarce 6 ½ X 9 period cartoon depicting the plight of the South under the thumb of the Yankees. Printed on one side on typically poor local paper stock for handout or public posting, this satirical cartoon with the unkempt Confederate and the classically portrayed U. S. Grant still retains its hurriedly done period watercolor embellishment. As we say a bit dog-eared from age and on poor paper stock but this rarely surviving piece of Americana remains solid and will lay nicely in any period collection. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

4262

Civil War era Medical / Surgical ¬- INDIA RUBBER COURT PLASTER

This original, Civil War era India Rubber Court Plaster remains in its nicely printed, INDIA RUBBER COURT PLASTER, / WARRANTED / Manufactured by J. H. Thacher / Portsmouth, N.H. The unopened packet remains in fine original condition containing a single surgical plaster measuring approximately 4 ¼ by 3 ¼ inches. The antique court plaster was a thin sheet which when wetted adhered to the skin so as to offer protection of the wounded surface. (see: India-Rubber & Gutta-Percha In The Civil War Era by Mike Woshner , also National Museum Of Civil War Medicine collection Pamplin Park)
Joseph Haven Thacher began his druggist’s business at the corner of State and Pleasant Streets in Portsmouth, New Hampshire sometime before 1851 (see period City Directories) and may be found in the 1861 New Hampshire Apothecary Directory. We’d guess that his brother who also ran an apothecary operated the business for a time during the Civil War as Joseph is listed as serving as Capt. Co. K of the 16th New Hampshire Infantry.
A neat addition to any Civil War vintage medical / surgical grouping without spending a lot of money. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

antique hand cut GAME BOX & DOMINO SET

A small piece of Southern pine (approximately 4 inches long X 1 ¾ X 1 ¾ square) is hollowed out to make a box and fitted with a slide top cover of the same material. The crude little box is just the required size to house a complete set of game pieces of hand cut beef bone. Each measures approximately 1 1/16 X 5/8 wide and varies in thickness from1/8 to 3/16; likely dependent on the thickness of available raw material. Good evidence of age and handcrafting of game pieces is offered by patina, tool marks and slight variation in size and markings. A wonderful example of the common practice of bone carving in the period. (See some examples from our personal collection at www.MaineLegacy.com) Thanks for visiting our Gunsight Antiques!

extra nice ! Maine Civil War Infantry Tintype

Just as plain a Civil War infantry soldier as you can imagine, this quarter-plate tintype is, with all its simplicity, worthy of a place in good collection. A wonderful demonstration of what a period infantry recruit should look like. A nice viewable size with crisp focus, strong contrast and striking hand applied color that is so frequently seriously muted by age. With only the most minimal evidence of age as good evidence of originality, this image will display well as is as a nice demonstration of period photography or will lay nicely behind glass in a period mat and frame. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased!

When the Civil War broke out, Wallace raised a Zouave regiment which was afterward known as the 11th Indiana Volunteers. Lewis Wallace continued to distinguish himself through the Rebellion with promotion to Division Commander then in recognition of his action at the storming of Fort Donnellson was promoted to Major General.

Lord collection militia CROSS BELT PLATE

Illustrated here with a quarter as size comparison, our photos should do best to describe this nice antique militia plate except to advise that this specific piece emanated from the collection of Dr. Francis Lord and is published Vol. II p. 17 of his classic reference Lord’s CIVIL WAR COLLECTORS ENCYCLOPEDIA. We acquired this piece several years ago when we were fortunate enough to purchase several groupings from the personal collection of our longtime friend, Dr. Francis Lord. A pioneer Civil War collector from a day when nearly no one else paid much attention to the details of many now valued Civil War collectable categories, Francis authored the widely known, multi volume, pioneer reference, Lord’s CIVIL WAR COLLECTORS ENCYCLOPEDIA. While a lot of detailed knowledge has been gained as the interest and value of Civil War collectibles increased so dramatically over the years, Dr. Lord’s first and second volumes in particular and his Civil War Sutlers & Their Wares continue to offer valuable and reliable reference to Civil War collectors. (Use Lord in our search feature to find other Lord collection items.) Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

Civil War ‘Orange Plank Road’ LAUREL ROOT CANDLESTICK

Not the most attractive thing to look at but a wonderfully pure old Civil War relic, is this neat old laurel root candle holder. Standing just under 11 inches tall the candlestick was fashioned from a laurel root burl at the top footed by sections of root all held together with period iron cutnails. The candlestick sports an old penned label in period brown ink : ORANGE PLANK ROAD MAY 7, 1864. The date will be familiar to students of the Civil War, in particular the Battle of the Wilderness. The Orange Plank Road too, will be recognized as a section of the Orange Turnpike built about the time of the War of 1812. Running through the Wilderness connecting Fredericksburg with the Orange Court House the planked section in particular became key to navigation of that part of the seventy square mile Wilderness thus left its mark in the history of the great battle there in May of 1864. The laurel burl will remind the enthusiast of Civil War soldier personal items of the popularity of these laurel knots in the carving of tobacco pipe bowls. Another find as we dig through the remnants of our forty plus years of gathering up such things, this old folk art candlestick came to us from among a small collection of GAR Civil War veteran hall keepsakes. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!
