4497

rare c.1861 7 Star CONFEDERATE SYMPATHIZER – Parade Flag

A wonderful size for easy display this 3 5/8 X 5 ½ inch parade flag is printed on glazed cotton in the rare 7 star pattern in support of the first wave of states to secede from the Union to form the CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA. Appropriate for use for a period just under four months after the secession of Texas as the seventh state to leave the Union on February 4, 1861 (preceded in order by South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana) and May 23, 1861 upon ratification of secession by the state of Virginia. In consideration of the adoption of the first official flag of the Confederacy in March 1861, the Stars & Bars, some may narrow the useful period even further. Period seven star flags are among the rarest of the Americanstars & stripes configuration. Scarce in any size, the 3 5/8 X 51/2 inch is the largest known of the seven star variety with the vast majority of the pattern measuring in the neighborhood of 3 inches or less in length. (see: Thomas D. Schiera American Parade Flag collection) As to condition this example retains its original dowel stick and remains in excellent condition pleasing color and with even age toning. The flag has a tiny period letter D penned in brown ink near its center? An outstanding piece for the discriminating collector of antique Americana! Buy with confidence!

WW II - U. S. Navy Destroyer - Quarterdeck Bell

A bit of a departure from our usual fare but its time to move this, keeper from a long ago trade, on to a new home. This entirely original World War II vintage U. S. Navy quarterdeck bell measures approximately 10 inches high, is 9 ½ inches across its mouth and weighs roughly 18 pounds. A war time casting in a special iron bell-alloy as a result of an emergency order from Washington limiting the use of bronze and brass to actual combat essentials. The tone of these bells made from the special bell metal is unique to the Navy for this highly specialized use and offers a strong resonance that will remain familiar to every veteran of a WW II built U. S. Navy Destroyer.

antique Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Jar

Better known today simply as Borden’s or Eagle Brand, the name New York Condensed Milk Co. will be familiar to Civil War historians for its contract with the Union Army as the primary supplier of condensed milk. An extraordinary field ration for the 19th century foot soldier, a typical 10 ounce tin provided 1,300 calories, 28 grams each of protein and fat, and more than 200 grams of carbohydrate. Popular among the troops and on the home front for its purity, durability and economy, Borden’s patrioticEagle Brand logo soon became a commonplace home kitchen item. By 1864 Borden’s New York Condensed Milk Company condensery in Brewster, New York was processing milk from over 200 dairy farms as demand was driven by home and military use. As milk was delivered by horse and wagon to homes in populated areas, fresh condensed milk was made available from the milk delivery man who received the product in sealed bulk containers. The customer brought this jar to the wagon and it was filled by the milkman from his bulk container. Along with the patriotic EAGLE BRAND Borden logo the reusable jar bore the reminder This Glass to be Filled Even Full on its rim and the 1858 date of founding of Gail Borden’s NY Condensed Milk Company. The company name appears on the bottom of the jar. This original period jar stands 3 ½ inches high, is 3 inches wide at the mouth and remains in excellent condition. The heavy glass jar was commonly stored in the icebox in a covered outer container. An interesting history and a tough item to find!

Confederate Navy identified: c.1852 New American Practical Navigator

With lots of good evidence of period use and some age foxing and light staining, this 1852 edition of The New American Practical Navigator by Nathaniel Bowditch remains complete in its 458 pages with the additional page of advertisements and fold out chart all with no tears or repairs. On the inside front cover is the small period stationers label of J. S. Kellogg DEALER IN Books & Stationary, Mobile, Alabama. On the flyleaf a the bold period brown ink signature J. D. Johnston with a pencil notation: C.S.S. Tennessee. Well accounted for in such early histories as DeLeon’s Navies in War and the Confederate Navy in the War Between the States and such as Addresses Delivered Before the Confederate Veterans Association of Savannah by United Confederate Veterans, Georgia Division and the Official Records of the Confederate Navy, James D. Johnston is recorded as Commander Provisional Navy, June 2, 1864, to rank from Oct. 4, 1863; Comm. C. S. S. Baltic 1861-63. Johnston was second in command of the iron clad ram C. S. S. Tennesseeunder Admiral Buchanan at the Battle of Mobile Bay where he was captured Aug.5 1864; prisoner at Ft. Warren; exchanged, Oct. 18, 1864; Mobile Station, 1864-65; surrendered May 4, 1865; paroled May 10, 1865. (Note: Capt. Johnston’s Confederate Navy sword is housed in the Hargrett Manuscripts Library Museum, University of Georgia; col:# ms508(m).) We found an 1896 obituary account as follows: J. D. Johnston died at Savannah, Ga., age 98; he is said to have been the surviving ranking officer of the Confederate Navy and the senior ranking officer by date of commission of the old United States Navy. Previous to the Civil War Johnston served in the U. S. Navy as Midshipman 30 June 1832; Passed Midshipman 23 June 1838; Lt. 34 June 1843. He resigned to join the Confederacy 10 April 1861.

Lord collection Excavated Civil War Artillery Hat Device

Illustrated here with a quarter as size comparison, our photos should do best to describe this excavated Civil War vintage hat insignia except to advise that it is entirely original and as photographed. Of interest to the collector will be that we acquired the piece from Francis Lord from his personal collection. Veteran collectors who are fortunate to have known Dr. Lord will remember that Francis had a habit of gluing things to display boards for show & tell at the old Civil War shows. Remnants of that glue remains on the back and can be easily removed with solvent but we’d leave it as is with the old man’s tracks on the back. We acquired this relic several years ago when we were fortunate enough to purchase several groupings from the personal collection of our longtime friend. (Our letter will come with this relic to preserve a record of its origin. 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!
