Civil War vintage ladies - PATRIOTIC HORN COMB

5605

Original! early 19th century (Kittery, Maine) NAVY YARD – IRON ROOM KEY

Emanating from the neighboring coastal Maine location of the Portsmouth Navy Yard in Kittery, Maine, this NAVY STORE - INSIDE KEY - TO IRON ROOM key would have secured the iron component storage area at the Navy Shipyard there. The Federal Government established the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in 1800 and the Kittery Yard (to locals) launched its first product, the 74-gun warship USS Washington, in 1814. An additional ten war ships were commissioned to the outbreak of the Civil War when a surge in activity at the old yard produced sixteen ships for the Union Navy. The shipyard remains active today constructing and overhauling some of the most sophisticated war ships of our modern Navy. Of interest to is that the location of the historic old shipyard fostered a vigorous boundary dispute between Maine and neighboring New Hampshire that was not settled until the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed the case in 2001. Measuring just over 8 ½ inches in length, this heavy iron antique key with its deeply patinated copper identification tag is an exceptional piece of historic Americana. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

outstanding! Civil War era ‘Quarter Size’ BOOTS

Whether you prefer to consider them child’s or, in consideration of their adult style and apparently unworn condition, as sales samples,this exceptionally nice pair of Civil War vintage boots measure 6 3/8 inches heel to toe and stand 9 ½ inches high. With classic Civil War period design and construction that will be familiar to collectors of period military ware, these boots will serve well as a demonstration of the larger examples worn into the Civil War. Remaining in exceptional original condition, with no evidence of wear, these boots sport the Pat. Nov. 29, 1853 marked brass toe caps as found in so many Civil War site excavations. (see: Excavated Artifacts from Battlefields & Campsites of the Civil War by Phillips) While there are no maker markings, the classic style with the toe caps and set in patent leather panels with Warranted embossing, are most consistent with the work from the John Batchelder Holliston, Mass. ’ten by ten’* cobbler shop. (So called by 1850s and first half 1860s locals of Holliston, Mass. where nearly one half of the working population labored in a number of small 10 X 10 foot cobbler shops that dotted the countryside.) Typically as many as a half dozen artisans plied their trade in each ten X ten making boots and shoes under the direction of the owner who marketed the footwear. In excellent original condition with no issues, this classily styled pair of Civil War era boots are sure to please! Buy with confidence!

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.

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.

Wide Civil War military use on all manner of leather accoutrements, horse equipment, waist belts and more has been well documented.

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.

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!
