1966

Civil War era Pinckney's PERFECT POLISH

This little 4 3/8" X 2 1/2" X 1 1/8" pasteboard box is in fine as new condition after decades of storage. It's crisp paper label along with material and construction offer all that the Civil War enthusiast will look for (including period fonts) to determine period of origin. PINCKNEY'S PERFICT POLISH for cleaning and polishing Gold, Silver, Nickle, Silver Plate, Jewelry, Brass and Copper Ware would we are sure fit just as well among the personal things of any sharp enlisted troop as well as that of the well got up officer (then as now, it took a good bit of spit and polish to keep the Army running smoothly.) The box is all original, of the period and even retains it's original unopened inner seal. (By direction we feel certain that the metal polish is surely just some version of common pumice. ) A special concoction for sure if you believe the claims of the preparer, Chas. P. Moore of Concord, New Hampshire.

2010

THE SALEM GAZETTE - Salem, Mass. - November 11, 1800

An original copy of the Salem Gazette, published by Thomas Cushing - Salem Mass. Tues. November 11, 1800. Published on a single sheet of 21"x 18" rag paper and folded to make up four 11" x 18" pages. The paper is in nice solid condition with edge irregularities and small period stitch marks at the left margin fold from period stitch binding. There are no repairs, tears or the like.
The lead article is a one and one-half column letter by then United States President John Adams to Hon. Thomas Pinckney Esq. of Charleston.
Adams discusses what seems to be some long ago forgotten point of honor which the reader is left to surmise is worthy of some significant consideration upon the consideration of Pinckney as Vice President to Adams on the Federalist ticket. The remainder of the first page is taken up by and account of the youth of Robert Burns. The account is written by the poet Burns himself. The second page contains the latest in foreign intelligence under a headline announcing the SURRENDER OF MALTA. An article on the Yellow Fever epidemic in Baltimore follows along with other news and intrigue of the day. The remainder is taken up with the posting of public notice, merchant advertisements, the arrival of shipping goods with auction and public sale of content, departures, and of course death and marriage notices. Of note in the first category is the death notice of Ho. Artemus Ward who had served as Commander in Chief of the American Army at Cambridge in 1775. Much more is presented that will be of keen interest to the serious historian or more casual reader of period Americana. A nice background item for the political collector as well.

Pat. 1851 LADY LIBERTY PATRIOTIC BUTTON

With it's high relief Lady Liberty figure on the face and bold N.R. Co. - Goodyear's Pat. May 6, 1851 on the back, this large (1 1/8" diameter) decorative hard rubber button remains in excellent original condition and will be of special interest Civil War era collectors. A popular design in an era of great patriotic fervor, hard rubber buttons of this figure were offered in several sizes with the smaller sizes by far the most common. The larger size like this one were considerably more expensive and were generally reserved for use where one or two would do the trick. We have seen them used in pairs at the throat of a gentleman’s cape and stitched alone on the breast of a shirt or frock coat simply as decoration. A neat all original item offered here at a reasonable price.

2077

early 1900s’ STARS & BARS - CONFEDERATE STICK FLAG

We have a very small quantity of small (8 3/4" X 5 1/2" ) Confederate ‘STARS & BARS’ stick flags printed on coarsely woven, light cotton muslin and are offering them individually priced for the collector who would enjoy a single example. Such flags saw typical use in the later 1800s’ and early 1900s’ and though used in considerable quantity in the twilight of the United Confederate Veterans (U.V.C.) era, are tough to find today in nice condition as most were displayed in the out of doors where exposure to the elements as grave and lamp post adornments quickly reduced them to faded tatters. These are good honest examples acquired from decades of storage and remain in bright undamaged condition on their original wood sticks.

This little pasteboard box measures approximately 3 X 7/8 X 7/8" and remains in fine original and untouched condition after decades of attic trunk storage.

Many a country trooper who had never encountered such critters found that the presence of body lice was a common challenge when large numbers of men marched and camped together in warm climate. Little fine toothed combs of hard maple wood or steel, if you could afford better, seemed the best way to separate pest from host and were a popularly requested item from home.

COLONIAL to CIVIL WAR BLACK IRON MESS UTENSILS

Classic early American iron work presented here in the form of hand wrought cooking utensils. This meat fork and boiled vegetable dipper or ‘skimmer’ as they were called, are clearly a set from the skilled hands of the same blacksmith and remain in excellent condition with no rust and an attractive age patina. Necessary to the preparation and ‘serving up’ of food over the open campfire or hearth in a time when cooking for large numbers was most frequently accomplished by boiling in large cast or sheet iron pots, this attractive pair will set equally well among items of American Colonial era through the Civil War period. The fork measures approximately 13 ½ inches in length and the skimmer 17 3/8 inches with pierced bowl of approximately 4 7/8 inches in diameter. A style well documented in history from Colonial collections to published references such as Stanley Philips classic Excavated Artifacts from Battlefields & Campsites of the Civil War.
