H 17in. x W 14in.  H 17in. x W 17in.        A desirable photo on its original 10 x 12 in. mount, imprinted <I> Photographed by GORMAN & JORDAN</I> on the front and on the back, <B><I>Gorman & Jordan, Army Photographers, Alexandria, Va.</I></B> with inked negative number <I>255</>and dated <I>April 1864</I>.   This photograph is an original example of Gorman & Jordan's only known war time images rendered of <B>5th Corps headquarters</B> at <B>Rappahannock Station </B>.  This image remains in fine original condition depicting enlisted men, officers, quarters and <U>regimental flag</U> of the <I>18th Massachusetts Infantry </B> at Corps Headquarters in the spring of 1864.  Precisely in the center, flanked by a staff officer on either side, stands Colonel, soon to be, <B>Brigadier General Joseph Hayes</B>.  As set in a period pencil notation on the mount back, Gen. Hayes was a graduate of Harvard class of 1855.  He mustered as Major of the 18th Mass Vols. on Aug. 24, 1861 and was promoted to Lt. Col. in August of 1862 then Colonel Nov. 30, I862.

 Penned on a single 8 X 10 sheet folded to offer 3  pages of cursive script laying out the <I>British & European Law</I> of <I> Uniform System of Night Signals</I> with a matching brown ink penned notation on the 4th page originally folded to serve as a cover. That notation is simply directed <I>Capt.</I> and advises <I>Night signaling as is required in British waters.  Per order:  <B>Adml. Semmes C. S. N.</B></I>  <U>Not a signature</U> but clearly an effort to pass along with emphasis the requirements of night signaling while sailing in British and European waters, to a ship’s Captain unfamiliar with sailing in such locations.  The particular circumstances of this interesting communication has been lost in time and must be left to the speculation.  A neat remnant of the Confederate Navy effort to keep the <I>homeland</I> supplied with the necessities of war, we would guess that the document was aimed in some fashion toward blockade running operations.

Most frequently referred to by collectors simply as a <I>foot warmer</I> these attractive portable warmers were in actuality  as versatile as the imagination and need to ward off the chill of winter.  Under the heavy blanket or buffalo robe of carriage or sleigh, family pew of a drafty church in winter, or in a sick room, these hand crafted ember <I>stoves</I> offered much comfort in a wide variety of circumstances.  This one measures approximately 8 inches square and stands about 5 ½ inches high not counting the wire bale carrier.  The new owner will likely wish a light cleaning and a bit of wax polish as we were fortunate enough to acquire the piece as you see it here untouched and as found after decades of attic storage.  A rarity in this condition, we chose to leave it pure and as found..  Complete even to include the original sheet iron <I>ember-holder</I> which is nearly always missing, this example remains in especially nice condition with no breaks, repairs or condition issues.   A classic of the type the wood frame sports turned columns with mortis and tenon joints all without the use of nails or metal brads.  The pierce decorated body is of tinned sheet iron, lead soldered with classic hinged door and wire latch.  The beveled ember container is of the classic design with a slightly curved up at the center bottom so as to allow air circulation  preventing overheating and eventual burning through at the bottom.  <B>Buy with confidence! </B><I>  We are pleased to offer a <B><U>no questions asked</U> three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!</B> <I>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.</I>  <FONT COLOR=#0000FF>Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :</FONT COLOR=#0000FF>

<b>Governor of Massachusetts</b>


(1847-1900) Born in Boston, Mass., he was descended from Connecticut Founding Father Oliver Wolcott, and his older brother was killed in the Civil War. He graduated from Harvard in 1870, attended Harvard Law School, graduated in 1874, and was admitted to the Suffolk County bar the same year. Wolcott opened a law office in Boston in 1875. He won a seat on the Boston Common Council in 1877, a position which he held for three years. He served as a member of the Massachusetts State Legislature from 1881–1884, and was offered the Republican Party nomination for Mayor of Boston in 1885, but refused on account of his father's poor health. Wolcott cared for his father until his death in 1891. He served as the Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts from 1893-97, and Governor of Massachusetts from 1897-1900. When the Spanish–American War broke out in 1898, Wolcott immediately put Massachusetts on a war footing, securing legislative authorization for military expenditures in just 25 minutes. The state was one of the first to supply militia troops to the war effort. In 1899, Wolcott decided not to run for reelection, and was offered a variety of diplomatic posts by President William McKinley, but refused them, and embarked on a trip to Europe with his family in May 1900. After his return he campaigned for Republicans in the 1900 elections. He fell ill with typhoid fever in mid-November, and died in Boston on December 21, 1900.


Antique photogravure, 2/3 standing view with one hand posed on top of an open book. Copyright, 1900, by E.C. Chickering. Published by A.W. Elson & Co., Boston. Printed facsimile autograph below his likeness and the imprint below, "Engraved for The Colonial Society of Massachusetts from a portrait from life." 4 x 6 5/8, tipped to an album page with hand drawn black ink borders. Overall page size is 6 x 9 1/4. Excellent portrait.   Measuring approximately 4 1/8 inches in length with a <U>flared lip</U> and <U>open pontil</U> this <I>medical</I> bottle dates from approximately 1845 with use into the Civil War.  The bottle bears a bold <B> Dr. McMunn’s Elixir of Opium</B> embossing and remains in excellent condition with only a very minor flake on the flared lip.  Not to be confused with more common, post pontiled, examples of the later 1800s, the earlier open pontil container was fashioned in two neck types, a <U>rolled lip</U> and the more delicate <U>flared lip</U>.  Fragile as they were, the flared lip type seldom survived intact.   A mainstay pain killer of the 19th century medical bag, extract of opium and its offspring <I>laudanum</I> (a tincture of opium mixed with alcohol and water) were all too available in the period as the <I>pure</I> elixir of opium and dilute <I>medical remedies</I> were offered over the counter by apothecaries, hawked from the back of medicine wagons and offered <I>under the counter</I> by the most popular camp sutlers North and South. (See: <I>SS Republic Artifacts & Treasures</I> for relics of the Civil War era sidewheeler <I>Tennessee</I> lost in a hurricane off the Georgia coast in 1865.)  As is true of this offering, most surviving, intact examples of these desirable little bottles are found in the walls of period dwellings where small cashes accumulated as individual <I>empties</I> were poked through a crack in the wall and discarded away from prying eyes.  A nice companion item for the Civil War medical enthusiast and an attractive period conversation piece for the personal item collector.  <B>Buy with confidence! </B><I>  We are pleased to offer a <B><U>no questions asked</U> three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!</B> <I>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.</I>  <FONT COLOR=#0000FF>Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :</FONT COLOR=#0000FF>


 Offered here, individually price for the collector who would like a single example, are tinned sheet iron, brass capped, spouts for use in country tin shops in the fabrication of earlier to mid 19th century tin ware.  Not a big deal to most as we are not sure if there are any folks out there besides Gunsight Antiques who collect 19th century country tin, but if so, here is your chance to acquire a neat, period fabricated, spout as was sold by tinsmith suppliers who carried all manner of material necessary to country tinsmiths.  Besides tinned sheet iron stock, lead solder &c, spouts such as this, cast lid knobs and the like who’s fabrication required more intricate equipment and special tools than was commonly found in small country tinsmith shops. A neat item to lay in with any 19th century tin grouping or occupational display.  Seldom seen today, these are the only pre utilization examples of such we have ever seen.  If you are new to our catalog and wish additional information or just to learn who we are, please check out our home page.   Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!!
