5509

earlier 1800s through Civil War era PLANTATION KNIFE

Acquired some years ago while traveling in Louisiana, this wonderful early hand wrought field knife with its massive 16 inch slightly curved, black iron blade and turned hardwood grip, will fit well in a myriad of collecting categories. With its long stout blade and naturally patinated grip from untold hours of long ago use, the piece is a classic of the early Southern field or cane knife style used by slave workers in cotton and sugar cane labor. Measuring just under 22 inches in total length with a blade that is a sturdy 1/4 inch thick at its back, this early utility would surely have been a prize to the field hand who would undoubtedly have been subject to close scrutiny while in possession of such a formidable item. Classic early construction is set off in this case by the presence of a well patinaed iron ferrule at the hilt with forged iron washer and peened tang at the butt. All reminiscent of so many hand forged D-guard and heavy bowie knives of Confederate popularity. An eye appealing piece of Southern Americana with Black History ties, the piece offers that telltale wavy blade construction knowledgeable collectors like and would not be out of place in a Confederate or primitive knife grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!

important ! Abolitionist / 13th Amendment contributor - Jacob Merritt Howard autographed Brady CDV

This original Mathew Brady Gallery portrait photograph of leading abolitionist, major contributor 13th, 14th and 15th amendments, personal friend and advisor to President Abraham Lincoln, Jacob Merritt Howard remains in photographically excellent condition and, on its face, bears the original bold penned signature of the sitter.
Vermont born Jacob Merritt Howard (July 10, 1805 – April 2, 1871) served as Civil War era U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator from the state of Michigan. Arguably one of the most influential persons to our nation’s constitution outside of the founding fathers, Howard is credited with working closely with Abraham Lincoln in drafting and passing the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which abolished slavery. In the Senate, he also served on the Joint Committee on Reconstruction, and was instrumental in drafting and passing the 14th and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution. An historically important remnant of Americana! Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!

an original! Civil War era - BANDAGE ROLL & SPLINT

Offered here (main picture) is a single original Civil War vintage surgical splint and period bandage roll from the medical grouping described below. An outstanding Civil War medical display item. We added the (Quarter for size comparison.) Should you want more than the one splint and bandage offered send us an e-mail and we will let you know what we have. The box is not available.
Some years ago we were fortunate enough to acquire a Civil War vintage slide top box containing it’s period content of rolled home spun bandages. Each bandage is of the period loomed cotton sheeting commonly provided by home front volunteers who came together, particularly in the Eastern textile mill region, to tear and roll strips of available textile for use as bandages by Army medical providers at the front. Most of these bandage rolls are secured with a paper band* wrapped round with a protective seal. (*see photos: We were curious enough to sacrificed one of the bandage rolls to open the paper band. They are Odd Fellow Lodge dues certificates. The one we opened was dated 1849 and was from a Newburyport, Mass. I.O.O.F. chapter. Oddly enough the wood box containing the bandages bore a stenciled Masonic device. Obviously repurposed to band the bandage rolls, it seems more than likely the then obsolete dues certificates were pressed into service by volunteers gathered in the local lodge hall.) The splint is fashioned of birch wood backed with cotton flannel, the thin wood being in narrow strips so as to conform to and immobilize the injured limb when wrapped with a textile bandage. Please note that the bandage and splint are offered here as found, the bandage unopened and unused while the splint, as was common in the field, has seen repeated use. This example is blood stained from period use. 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!

rare oversize – American Lead Pencil Co. – STORE DISPLAY DIPPING PEN

An outstanding companion item for the righting instrument enthusiast, this wonderful old American Lead Pencil Co. measures a full 12 15/16 inches in length with the nib in place and sports 99% of its original marbled enamel finish in the shaft. All in nice original condition with an age patina on the nib and metal components. One of the first pencil factories in this country, the American Lead Pencil Co. was founded by Edward Weissenborn who immigrated to America in 1854. In 1860 after assisting in the design and construction of the Civil War battleship, the USS Monitor, Edward set up his pencil factory. His American Pencil Company quickly earned a reputation for producing quality writing instruments and utilized complimentary letters from four members of President Lincoln's cabinet in their advertisements. Nicely maker marked from the American Lead Pencil Co. this unusual oversize ink pen will clean nicely if you wish but we’d leave it as is with the nice natural age coloring. Will display nicely with any writing instrument or antique store display. 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 !

14566

E. HARTSHORN & SON / ESTABLISHED 1850 - Worm Extract – medicine bottle

A neat item simply as a Civil War era personal item or period medical component, the bottle collector will quickly recognize the rare embossing variation E. HARTSHORN & SON [singular] / ESTABLISHED 1850 / BOSTON, MASS instead of the usual E HARTSHORN & SONS [plural with a reverse order of: ] BOSTON MASS. - ESTABLISHED 1850 as seen on these bottles. (The only such variation example we have found.) Likely an important feature with respect to desirability for the bottle collector, though as Civil War era collectors we were most pleased with the presence of the original label. Dr. Edward Hartshorn was born in Gloucester, Mass. 1817 and graduated from the Harvard Medical School in 1840. After practicing medicine for some time Dr. Hartshorn turned his attention to pharmaceuticals taking his sons aboard each in turn as they reached the age of majority. The bottle is in pleasing condition and the label, as you can see remains in excellent condition. A neat display item! 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 !

Lord collection - post Civil War - Veteran 7th CORPS BADGE

Illustrated here with a US quarter for size comparison is a post Civil War veteran’s 7th Army Corps badge. Of interest to the collector and preserved in our accompanying letter will be the fact that 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!
