Original! Antique! ROLLER BUCKLES

We have acquired a nice lot of original antique black iron roller buckles and are offering them here individually priced for the collector / historian who would like an example for use or display. Originally emanating from the clean out of 19th century harness and leather work shop where the harness maker cut the buckles from used leather and threw them into a large wood box for reuse. From this mix we have separated a number of classic roller buckles and are offering them here in two sizes all remaining in pleasing as found and usable condition many even retaining remnants period black paint finish. We have buckles sized to accept 1 3/8 and 1 ¼ inch wide straps so be sure and note the size you need when ordering. Wider waist belts were frequently cut down on the leading end to accept the standard 1 3/8 inch buckle. (see illustration) A classic design of the Civil War era we have seen these heavy black-iron roller buckles in use back to the Mexican War vintage Grimsley U. S. Dragoon saddles. Wide Civil War military use on all manner of leather accoutrements, horse equipment, waist belts and more has been well documented. 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 !

5532

c. 1860 Abraham Lincoln - FOLK ART OIL PAINTING

Measuring 24 1/8 x30 ¾ inches on its original stretcher, this oil on canvas beardless Lincoln portrait is signed (A. Aloisi) and offers good evidence of age and originality while remaining in pleasing condition save an easily restorable small tear just above the ear and some natural age thin spots that are likewise easily restorable. (All easily seen in our illustrations, we have chosen to leave the painting as found to preserve originality.) The painting is taken from a photograph by Alexander Heslet during a June 3,1860 sitting while Lincoln was campaigning for the presidency. A popular image of the Rail Splitter in the early campaign, Heslet’s Lincoln and images taken from his work, became well known in the period and are especially sought by todays collectors. Lincoln’s law partner, William Herndon, commented that the image was so essentially Lincolnian; no other artist has ever caught it. Nicely done yet offering a crudeness not seen in the work of a trained artist, the special charm of this old piece will place it in the folk art category to most. An exceptional piece of Americana, this early presidential campaign rendering from the Springfield, Illinois photographer’s a beardless Abraham Lincoln photograph will show off well. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!

5658

Late 1880s / early 1900s UNITED CONFEDERATE VETERAN (UCV) Banner

Boldly marked on one side for vertical display this colorful U. . V. banner measures 12 inches wide at the top and is 22 inches in total length. Stencil printed on cotton in the fashion common to the turn of the century the banner remains solid with some tattering yet bright in color and appears never to have been exposed to the weather or bright sun while offering good evidence of age and originality. Just rediscovered three of these (use our search see # 5656 & 5657) as we rummage through our long ago tucked away stuff, this old banner was recovered as part of a small grouping from, of all places, the attic remains of a long ago defunct Yankee G. A. R. hall. (Those were the days!) How the banner came to Maine Civil War veteran hall storage can only be left to the imagination though it seems more than likely that the piece was a souvenir of a trip South for one of the joint G. A. R. – U. C. V. reunions common in the waning years of first generation Civil War veterans. Buy with confidence!

5626

19th century bone mounted Nut Pick

Not a big deal but a nice honest utility to display with Civil War vintage personal items without spending a lot of money. A must have in the days before plastic bags and cellophane wrapped snacks, the days when a hand full of black walnuts or pecans served as a welcome treat, a nut pick (also a handy tool to loosen a knot) was a common utility carried in pocket or haversack. This antique bone mounted iron pick remains in pleasing condition with a telltale age shrinkage crack in the bone as good evidence of age and originality. Solid and ready for use! please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!

earlier to mid 1800s – hand cut white glass DICE

We have a small number of these 19th century glass dice and are offering them here priced by the pair for the collector who would like a set. Classic period hand crafting of each individual piece is made obvious by the irregularity of dot placement and out of square shape of each game piece as it was hand sheared from hot, square drawn, glass stock. Difficult to find and nice companion item for any earlier to Civil War era personal, or gaming grouping. 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 !!

6th plate ambrotype – Boy in early (gray) Forage Cap & Ivory Headed Walking Stick

Our illustrations will do best to describe the sharp focus, crisp contrast and overall condition of this just pre or early Civil War cased 6th plate ambrotype. A Maine find where late 1850s and early Civil War issue forage caps of the configuration and light color as is worn by our subject were in vogue, (see: RALLY ROUND THE FLAG / Uniforms of Union Volunteers of 1861 by Ron Field) this image of a well-dressed young boy in oversized military cut forage cap and ivory headed walking stick will lay in well with any Civil War era grouping and will be of special interest to the just post and early Civil War enthusiast as well as the collector of children photos of that period.
