Packed away since we acquired them years ago when Maine country attics held a myriad of such 19th century remnants of everyday use, we have uncovered a small lot of earlier through mid 1800s clothes pins and are offering them here priced by the pair for the collector who would like a couple for display. These antique clothes pins were hand cut from a sapling or small tree branch which was split then bound with a strip of tinned iron to form what must have been a very effective clothes pin. We have seen this style in years past but like most everyday utilitarian items of the period, they seem to have mostly vanished. With pleasing age and originality, a pair of these original will go well with other period country items or in any grouping of Civil War vintage personal things. ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
