ORIGINAL 2 GALLON GYPSY POT

  I can count the number of good useable gypsy pots that I have owned over the last 45 years on one hand. The term "gypsy pot" is just what the old folks used to call these when I was a kid. This style will work for any era in America. From Jamestown to the Civil War. They were antiques during the civil war but broken shards of this style of pot are often dug in the trash pits of larger CW camps. I have actually found shards of smaller versions of these in the local Indian camps. These pots were a very desirable trade item.
  Anyway I was very lucky to find this one. I have cleaned it, sand blasted the inside and as you can see from the photos I have been seasoning it as well.
  The lip of this vessel shows two cracks, not cracks as if it were broken but what the old metal guys call "cooling cracks". They do not go all the way through and the pot rings like a bell when tapped. You will have to look hard to find them but I thought you should know. They will not affect the pot in any way.

SAUSAGE GRINDER, CW ERA

  This is just about as good as it gets. This CW era sausage grinder is ready to use. This a multi-purpose tool. They were used as food choppers and to cut leaf tobacco into smoking tobacco. I don't think you will find one in better condition that this.

STORAGE TIN

  This storage tin is a very versitile little item. It has a bail for easy carry. The lid snaps on tight. It measures 6 inches tall and 7 1/2 inches across. It will easily hold half a gallon.
  This is the origianl "lunch bucket" and when you hear an old song mention a "bucket of beer", this is what they were talking about. So they had a pretty lengthy period of service.

STORAGE TIN SMALL

  This storage tin is made just as the one above it's just smaller. It has a bail for easy carry. The lid snaps on tight. It measures 3 inches tall and 4 inches across. It will easily hold 2 cups. This one has some dings but you can see them all in the photo above.

SAD IRON

  This is the first sad iron I have ever owned that had any of the original paint on it. It's a little more ornate than your typical sad iron. It has a nice clean bottom but they always need to be cleaned before being used. It's best to try them out on a scrap piece of white fabric before each use.

SAD IRON $29.95 BUY NOW!



CAMP FIRE SET

  This is the heavy duty version of a camp fire set. Made from 1/2 iron rather than the typical 3/8 inch. This set will hold a 2 gallon pot full to the top without any worries. The uprights measure 57 inches tall and the cross bar is 37 inches across. The extra hieght of the uprights allow you to use this set confidently even in soft or wet soil as you can sink them as deep as need be and still have plenty of hieght so that the cross bar is not too close to the fire. There is no ill effect if the ground is hard and you only have to sink the uprights a few inches. Just use a chain and S hooks to lower your pots to the desired height.

COTTON CARDS (COMBS)

  This marked set of cotton cards are in very good condition, manufactured in Lowell Mass. They are old but still sound enough for heavy use. They may not be civil war vintage but they are made exactly the same as. Even if you don't actually "use" them just imagine what a great prop these will be sitting next to a basket of wool or cotton at the foot of your spinning wheel.

VERY UNUSUAL DEMI-JOHN

  This is one of the oddest little 1/2 gallon crocks I've ever seen. It is of typical body design. There is nothing unusual about the neck or the color or the glaze. But - there is no handle! Now you would think that a trivial thing but just look at how it changes the appearance of the jug so completely. Now if you display your crock collection this would be a wonderful piece to "break up" overall look. Too many of any one design and a display tends to be boring.
  Now on the other hand if you decide to use it that would be perfectly fine. It's a real "eye catcher". Regardless of what you decide to fill it with it will be a nice addition to your camp setting. When people walk by and see it they will certainly have to ask about it. Best of all it's not expensive. It does have one small chip at the very bottom. The chip is about the size of a 1/2 dime. It was done so long ago it is dark with age, just not that noticeable.

SMALL WOODEN STIRRUP

  This is what I would call a "small size" wooden stirrup. Probably for a pony saddle. I normally sit these things back until I find a pair but they are getting scarce these days so I'm just going go ahead and list it. I'm sure someone has a saddle that needs one.
  This one measures 6 inches tall and 5 inches at it's widest.

  This fake fur "Bear Skin" lap blanket really has the look. I've only owned one original but for actual use this fake fur lap blanket is better. The original was impractical as it weighed a ton.

SKY BLUE PANTS SLIGHTLY FADED


  I've got a great deal for you if you wear a size 46 or 48 waist. There were a couple of pair hanging on the rack near the window, too near the window as it turns out. They've got a little "sun fade" damage. Nothing terrible but you can see it if you look. It will not show up on a photo, that's why I did not bother to put one up here. You'll never buy a new pair of pants cheaper than this. Hurry before they are gone.

1881 SCOUT ARMY STOVE

  Well this was certainly an unusual find. You will have to forgive the name I have given this piece. The only drawing (no photographs) of it I have been able to find is in the 1881 book, "Mountain Scouting", A handbook for officers and soldiers on the frontiers, by Edward S. Farrow. It's on page 177 if you want to look it up.

  It measures 14 inches wide, 18 inches long, or deep if you prefer and 18 inches tall with the legs attached, the legs are removable. Amazingly it weights less than 10 lbs.! You can pack this stove anywhere. It's just as strong now as the day it was made, very useable. It has one small rust hole in the bottom about the size of a small pencil erraser but don't let that concern you as the surrounding material is strong.

  Now I'm not saying that this is original to the Indian wars. It may not be G.I. at all. The style is very similiar if not exact to the example I have givin above. You know as well as I that the army will adopt goods from the civillian market and vice versa but regardless of when it was made or for whom, it does have the look.

  Now should you wish to actually use this stove - go ahead. As long as you treat it with respect it will last a very long time. It's tin and tin burns out easily. The trick is to shovel several scoops of dirt into the stove to act as insulation against the heat and build small fires. If you don't do that - well - then you will ruin it in short order.

CAVALRY BOOTS ODD SIZES

  What in the world are you going to do with a pair of mis-matched cavalry boots? Good question, how about use them in a display for your war room. Or how about when you go to schools to speak about the war. They would look pretty good beside a saber and belt. You may even have mis-matched feet - I don't know. At this price I bet you can find something to do with them.

SILVER-ISH TEAPOT

  This teapot will be a great prop for someone portraying a refugee fleeing with their valubles or a Yankee with plunder. No dents or scratches and of course it's plated, not solid. It's a great prop. but if you want to use it you'll have to scrub the insides.

GEORGE WOSTENHOLM IXL SHEFIELD BONE HANDLE HOOF KNIFE

  This is the first time I've ever owned an original bone handled hoof cleaning knife ID'd as "IXL"! The style is pre-civil war. A good "knifeman" should be able to date it exactly (or close) by the markings. You can read the makkings with a mag. glass but they are to faint to photograph. The "hook" on the end is gone but that detracts little from it's useability or it's looks. If it were perfect it's value would be twice what I'm asking for it.

SHUTTLE FOR A HAND LOOM

  This would be a very unique gift for anyone who loves weaving or the spinning arts in general. Like everything else I like - these things are really getting scarce. In the past I have paid as little as $1.00 for them and they were marked, some with war dates. Now I hardly see them for sale.
  This one has the single feed out hole in the back as is typical. It measures 11.5 inches long and 1 7/8 inch wide and is just over 1 inch tall. It's a neat little piece of weaving history.

MUZZLE LOADER 12 GA.

  This 12 ga. muzzle loading shotgun is in pretty fair shape for it's age. No real problems, the barrels are clear and clean. It does have modern replacement nipples so someone has been shooting it but my lawyer says I that I can't recommend that you shoot it. He says, "Before attempting to shoot any antique weapon you should always have it thoroughly examined by a competent gunsmith to determine if it is structurally sound enough to be fired. Serious injury and even death can be caused by firing faulty firearms." There, now he's earned his money.
  Take a close look at the wrist of the stock, it has been cracked and repaired. It was not broken, just cracked. The action is pretty good, better than most with a 3 to 4 pound trigger pull on each side. Not a bad old shotgun, not bad at all.

HAND STITCHED LYNCHBURG TENNESSEE QUILTS

  There are so many things that I would like to say about these quilts and the wonderful lady who made them I really don't know where to start. First I suppose I should address the mis-information I hear being "spouted about" by some of our so called experts in the reenacting community. I have heard it said from time to time how incorrect it would be for a Southern soldier to carry a patchwork quilt - to which I would like to reply shouting from the roof top at the top of my lungs "B.S.!" And heres why.
  Take a look at any newspaper from any small Southern town that raised a company of soldiers. Not the war date but just prior to the war when these companies were first being formed. So many of these papers published a weekly list of the donations that the local citizens had made to said company. Why you ask? Because then as today publishing such things promotes the generosity of the giver. People love to see their name in the paper. Although I have seen many examples of this over the years the one I have in hand is a local paper with a list of some 120 items that had been donated to the company that would later become Co. G of the 41st Tenn. Vol. C.S. Over 15 percent of those donations were quilts. And yes they do make a distinction between wool blankets, jacards, coverlets and quilts in their listing. I'm not even going to start on the surviving examples of war dated quilts that were made as donations to fund raising events or war dated memorial quilts. The most famous of which being the 17th Tenn. quilt. So now I here you say "Well they were only early war". Yes and no, I don't know about you but my nice warm quilt would be one of the last things I would leave behind. I don't think they were much different. We tend to think about our own comfort fairly often. Of course attrition and the decimation of the southern populace and their ability to conduct commerce would have a very thinning effect on the ability to produce quilts so let's turn our attention northward for just a moment.
  There is example after example of surviving quilts and the paper trail which led to their construction and distribution to the northern troops by the good work of the US Sanitary Commission. Once again boys and girls that is why I stress the merits of doing your own research and tracking down the first hand accounts and primary sources of your information. Now that that is off my chest let me tell you about these quilts.

  Firstly I do not recommend that you buy one of these quilts and take it to a reenactment. That would be like taking your 32 Ford Roadster out mudding. They are just too nice and belong on your bed, at home or better yet in any historical home, public or private. The quality of workmanship and material is simply amazing. As a young child I sat at my Mother's feet while 3 generations of our family made quilts. I know a little something of what I speak.

 : So let me tell you about "Granny". Granny Lois Scroggins, the Grand Ole Dame who was the architect of these quilts. Mrs. Scroggins was born in Oklahoma City in 1920 and learned to sew, knit and crochet at a very early age. These skills helped support the family as during the dust bowl years they had to travel about following the work. Finally establishing themselves in Moore Co. Tenn. Which most of you will know better as world famous Lynchburg Tn. Home to the Jack Daniel's Distillery. During her adult life she would only sew for family, but once she retired she returned to her first vocation with a vengeance. Working 8 hours a day just as if she were at a public job she could produce a finished quilt in about 3 weeks by herself! Every stitch is hand sewn, top to bottom, inside and out. All the materials are 100% cotton including the tread. In design and scope she was only limited by her imagination which meant she had few limits as she was one of the most creative people you would ever meet. Sadly she passed away in 2012, near the end of her life her fingers had become to stiff to sew but she has left a legacy that will last for generations to come.
  The family is selling off a few of her quilts as they are down sizing due to health reasons. You will never have another chance to buy a quilt of this quality at any price and I do not expect them to last long. All of these quilts are very large, I will give the exact measurements of each below.

The bear paw meant "keep to the woods". This quilt measures 101 inches by 98 inches.

CHEWED .69 CAL. BALL

  This .69 caliber round ball was found in a CS camp in Wartrace Tn. As the story goes these balls were used by Surgeons when there was little or no anesthesia. The patient would bite down on these bullets to keep from cracking his teeth during the extreme pain of surgery. That would give us a very short window of when this ball was used. The only local battle to produce any amount of casualties was the Tullahoma Campaign which started on the evening of June 23 of 63 and the troops withdrawing from our area (Wartrace) on the 26th. CS troops never reoccupied this area again.

STEAMSHIP ROBERT E. LEE

  I know that this has nothing to do with the CW except the name Robert E. Lee but these are so hard to find I just had to offer them here.
    In the 1980's George Dickel Distillery produced a line of commemorative wooden boxes which held two - one fifth bottles of their fine product. They ceased the production of these boxes almost 30 years ago so as you can imagine they are all long gone --- with the exception of the few that I was lucky enough to find. The box tops are made from cabinet grade material and the box is very well put together. They are decorative, collectible and very hard to find. As you might imagine the R.E. Lee is one of the most sought after. Imagine using this box for a Christmas present or putting another gift inside it for double the surprise. You could even refill it with your favorite brand of spirits, I recommend G.D.'s though, they did make the box.
  These boxes measure approx. 12 inches long by 9 wide and 4 inches deep. The lids are snug but will slide completely off if you wish. This would be handy if you wish to do something crafty with the inside of it. Most folks will just use them for decoration around the old bar area but don't limit yourself. I bet you can thing of a lot of ways to use these.

  If you prefer I have the box tops only. You can easily add a picture hanging loop to the reverse (available at any craft or hardware store) and hang it on the wall for decoration.

ONE PINT POCKET FLASK

  This is the largest modern pocket flask I've ever seen. It's stainless steel and very well made. It was a display item so it has a few small scratches on it, all very minor. You have to look for them to see them. Only one I have left that's why the price is so discounted. It's been my experience that when it comes to flask bigger really is better.

POWDER FLASK

  This is not a well made top of the line powder flask. These are seconds, not all but some are bumped, dinged, bent and with a weak spring that will probably have to be replaced in the future. Their only saving grace is their price. Look at it this way - The spout cost what I'm charging for the whole flask so you can't loose. And who couldn't use an extra flask for priming powder, cream of wheat, etc. etc.

ROPE BED (circa) 1840

  I bought this original rope bed and feather mattress about 15 years ago up in Maryland. The mattress measures 50 inches wide by 70 inches long (there abouts) I've really enjoyed it but I'm running out of space for large pieces like this. I guess it's time to pass it on and let someone else enjoy it. You get the bed, the rope and the feather mattress but the quilt is not included. The Jenny Lind Trunk at the foot of the bed has sold. You'll have to pick this one up, I don't think UPS will deliver this one.

SECOND PRINTING, NEW LOWER PRICE!
L. VIRGINIA FRENCH'S
WAR JOURNAL 1862-1865


  The second printing is here! Much of our initial printing cost and overhead was covered by the sale of our first printing of this fantastic book. Now we can offer it to you at an even lower price than before. Hopefully this will give even more people access to this book which many are calling the "Civilian Company Aytch".

  L. Virginia French's journal gives the best insight into the everyday life of a Middle Tennessean that was ever put to pen. During the first part of the journal her thoughts are somewhat philosophical but as time goes on and the war comes to her home in McMinnville Tennessee it all becomes very personal. Accounts of Yankee raids on the town, factories burned without warning while the female workers are still on the top floor and Cavalry battles literally in her front yard. She entertains General John Hunt Morgan and his new bride Mattie Ready Morgan days after their wedding. Fans of General Morgan will be amazed at the stories Mrs. French records in her journal as told by the General himself. Written down the very day of the telling. General Wheeler visits so often that a member of his staff becomes engaged to Virginia's niece!
  Women will be astounded by the details of of the local ladies dress, right down to the fabric, buttons and even their jewelry.
  Details of how Terry's Texas Rangers were re-equipped by the local tradesmen, from their horse tac, shoes, boots and even how the local ladies pitched in to help with the clothing.
  Every General officer, Colonel or Major that passes through the area calls on Mrs. French and she relates their tales to you through her journal. So many of the nagging questions about everyday life during the period, that I never thought I would know the answer to unfolded before me in crystal clarity as I read this journal.
  It is probably best that we let her speak for herself.

  A very small portion of this journal has been edited for clarity. In a few cases so has the spelling. But for the most part is appears here just as it does in the journal.

1860 CAVALRY SABER

  Wow! what a great deal on an 1860 Cav. saber. These sabers are very sturdy and well made. The size and weight of this blade is very close to the originals too. There are some dings on the leather handle wraps but nothing larger than a quarter inch. Nothing to loose any sleep over, just thought you should know. The best part about these sabers is the price. Only $44.95. I've only got a few. If you want one you had better get it now before they are all gone.

BRASS BUCKLES

  Sorry that the photo is not as clear as it should be. These cast brass buckles are not the top quality buckles that we sell everyday. But with that being said I'll add that they aint that bad either. They have the traditional C.W. style back but they are easily converted to fit your everyday belt. Made from solid cast brass that will last a lifetime. But I saved the best for last, they are super cheap! $5.95 each for oval or rectangle buckles and $9.95 for tongue and wreath. It's hard to go wrong at that price.

Here's the line up; Top left tongue and wreath is a Ky. state seal.
