EXCEPTIONAL CONFEDERATE CARTRIDGE BOX

 

PRICE   $  10,500.00

DESCRIPTION

An absolutely stunning Confederate 54 caliber cartridge box with tarred linen sling and lead finial. The brown leather box has a single cartridge tin with implement pouch behind outer flap. The box is sewn with heavy white thread. The linen sling has leather tabs for attachment through roller buckles sewn to ends. The leather latch tab is complete.

It is thought that these style boxes were made in either North Carolina or Georgia, this example being very similar to a box known to have been carried by a private in the 38th Georgia. Provenance: the estate of Steve Mullinax, private Georgia collection.

 

CONDITION

    Outstanding condition. Sling is strong and supple with much of the tarred finish remaining. Outer surfaces of box show only very minor crackling and leather is still very supple. There is a small area of loss to the edge of the implement pouch flap. Latch tab is complete. All stitching is intact.

This is unquestionably one of the finest examples in existence and possibly the finest.
