This canteen is a little larger than the average tin drum canteen. This one meas. approx. 8.00 inches across and is approx. 2.08 inches wide.

One side of the canteen is completely flat while the other rises gradually toward the center where it ends with a small circle approx. 2.00 inches wide. The edges of the canteen are raised and extend slightly above the plain of the edge piece. Both spouts are present as are the three sling keepers.

The flat side of the canteen has a very nice painted decoration of a wagon or artillery wheel lying on its side in a small bush with a musket with bayonet fixed lying on the ground in front of it with one or two cannonballs scattered around. The painted area occupies the full width of the panel and three quarters of its height. There is scattered paint loss. The heaviest concentration is on the wheel. Most of the spokes are gone but the outside rim is there. The details can still be seen and the colors used give an attractive impression. The opposite raised side has four flags emanating from the small circle at center, two on each side. Most of the paint has worn off in this area but the flagpoles and the blue canton on each flag can be seen. There is the slightest hint of a red stripe showing all four flags were US flags.

Double spout canteens are rare items indeed and this one being Confederate adds to the desirability of the piece.
