This is a 5 x 4 1/2 piece of an album page with two Civil War date autographs of Union nurses neatly written in ink that came out of a soldier autograph album that was long ago broken up. #1: Clara Norris, Fortress Monroe, Va., January 1, 1865. #2: Nellie Norris, Washington, D.C., August 15, 1864. Very fine.   


(1820-1891) Graduated #6 in the West Point class of 1840. Rising to be one of the Union's most renowned military leaders, Sherman saw action at 1st Bull Run, Shiloh, Chickasaw Bluffs, Arkansas Post, Vicksburg, Missionary Ridge, Atlanta, the infamous March to the Sea, and the 1865 Carolina's campaign. He received the surrender of Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston's army at Greensboro, N.C., on April 26, 1865. Sherman continued in the Regular Army after the war and became a Lieutenant General on July 25, 1866, and Full General, on March 4, 1869.


<u>Signature With Rank, Place & Date</u>: 4 3/4 x 2 7/8, in ink, W.T. Sherman, General, Washington, D.C., Dec. 15, 1887. Very nice and an extremely desirable autograph.  


 


Civil War patriotic imprint with full color illustration of a female figure wearing an American flag dress and holding a sword in one hand and the scales of justice in the other. Slogan below: "No North, no South, No East, No West But Equal and Exact Justice to all."  Light age toning and a small tear at bottom right edge that has been repaired on the reverse with archival document tape.

 Standing 6 3/4 inches and 4 13/16 inches in diameter with a 2 1/2 inch wide opening at the mouth, this attractive 19th century oyster jar remains in pleasing condition with no cracks, chips or other detracting issues and is nicely maker marked GEORGE SKEY – WILNECOTE – TAMWORTH.  George Skey established his stoneware works in Tamworth in 1860 and quickly became a world leader in the manufacture of all manner of stoneware containers.  His stoneware beer bottles will offer Civil War collectors the most prevalent example of his product with oyster jars such as this one showing up in far less quantity.   A coveted culinary treat of the Civil War camp, period photographic examples of these stoneware oyster jars seem reserved to the officer’s mess table.  <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>  Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

Our photo illustrations will do best as a description of these nice old 18th century scales.  Untouched and completely original even to the original green cotton suspensions, the iron beam is nicely shaped in the classic style of the 18th century.  The brass pans offer an attractive deep age patina.

The inside cover retains its period silk lining under an attractive printed guide to weight of various gold coins.

Never Let That Flag Be Dishonored $5.00

Offered in fine, <I>as new</I> condition after decades of storage, we have a very limited number of <B>Dr. CHILTON’s FEVER and AGUE CURE Manufactured by COMSTOCK & BROTHER, New York</B> labeled pill boxes of turned birch wood, each containing a complement of pills.   Founded in New York in 1853 the Comstock & Brother apothecary firm was a colorful outfit to say the least, spending as much time in court fighting off charges that they had invented doctors such as <I>Dr. Chilton</I> out of thin air simply to promote their <I>cures</I>. In one instance court records show they not only created an cure creator but invented a history to include family members and life among the Indians where the secrets of the <I>cure</I> were learned.  By 1863 the brothers Comstock had parted ways and their apothecary business ceased to exist. More than anyone needs to know we suppose but an interesting bit of Americana.  Priced here individually for the collector who would enjoy one, this offering will go well in any period apothecary, early <I>quack</I> medicine or Civil War era personal grouping.  please note:   <B>ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!</B>  Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!  Our photographs will likely do best to describe this colorful multi-dimensional Victorian picture puzzle.  Offered here as attic found, stored in a wonderfully labeled <B>CRANDALL’S - Great Show Acrobats – Pat. 1867</B> dovetailed, game box.  The slide top pine box remains in excellent condition measuring approximately 9 7/8 x 6 1/8 x 2 inches.  The puzzle consists of 20 wood blocks each 1 ¼ inch square. Each covered on four sides by colorfully illustrated lithograph paper, each side a portion of one of six detailed scenes. (see photos).  Two period printed sheets remain in the box as a guide to scenes.  (We will include laser printed views to each of the additional scenes.)  The blocks remain in eye appealing condition with bright colors but with wear at the edges as evidence of period use of the toy.  An attractive mid 1800s play item, the owner will have a tough time deciding which of the colorful illustrations to display.  <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>  Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!

WBTS Trivia: The well known slogan on this patriotic imprint was given a humorous spin and used in the 1900's in regards to the Washington Senators professional baseball club. The slogan adopted for the hapless Senators was, "Washington; First in Peace, First in War, and last place in the American League."     


Civil War patriotic imprint with vignette of a star at the center of this design surrounded by American shields and flags, with a spread winged eagle at the top. The banner reads, "E Pluribus Unum."

extra fine! original Civil War – ARTILLE

Considered by many to be the first officer to fall as a causality of the Civil War, the image of young Zouave Colonel Elmer Ellsworth became a center piece among Union sympathizers after he was shot and killed as he removed a Confederate flag from the Marshal House in Alexandria, Virginia.   Badges such as this one featuring a <I>gem</I> size tintype of Col. Ellsworth were worn by military and civilian citizens in the patriotic fervor of the early Civil War.

H 17in. x W 14in.  H 17in. x W 17in.  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.

This one measures approximately 8 inches square and stands about 5 ½ inches high not counting the wire bale carrier.
