CIVIL WAR CAVALRY CARBINE CARTRIDGE BOX

$200.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1000-2157

This carbine cartridge box is an original example of the classic leather accoutrement carried by Federal mounted forces during the Civil War. This specimen is constructed of strong, black bridle leather. When closed, the large leather outer flap and smaller inner flap protect the ammunition in the carbine box. The drilled wood cartridge block is present. The strong outer flap has a mild scalloped front edge. Leather is good. Stitched to the center edge of the main flap is a leather closure tab that is worn but remains whole and strong. Inner flap retains only one “ear”. Inner flap features the maker’s stamp: “E. GAYLORD / CHICOPEE / MASS”.  Inner flap closes over a small implement pouch sewn to the front of the box. Bottom of box has a brass finial and one remaining black japanned roller buckle. On the box’s back side there remains two of the vertical, leather belt loops with a single horizontal leather strip. The stitching is strong and tight. A very nice example of a Civil War Federal carbine cartridge box.   [jet]
