MINIATURE VERSION OF STONEWALL JACKSON’S FORAGE CAP

$125.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 668-58

The origin of this well-made copy of a Confederate forage cap is unknown. The cap is clearly patterned after one that was made for General Stonewall Jackson by his wife Anna.

The body of the cap is cream colored with a crown that slopes well forward like a bummer style cap. The body was made in the proper way with a front and rear seam. The disc is also made correctly with a welt around the edge. The visor is real leather with a tooled line that gives it a bound edge look. Side buttons are plain and the chin strap is thin leather complete with both keepers. Around the base of the cap is gold cord faded to silver that forms a trefoil at the rear of the cap. The interior has no sweatband but it does have a wonderful white satin lining that is drawn closed in the crown with a drawstring.

The item is in excellent condition throughout with just the smallest amount of surface dirt and two or three very tiny areas of moth tracking. There are no holes.

With the item is a color paper print of the original cap that was made by General Jackson’s wife. Comparing this little cap to the one in the photograph shows many similarities. The lining cannot be seen in the photo but everything else looks the same. There even appears to be a line of gold braid running around the base of the cap. This little item is no slapped together item, it was made with care, skill and attention to detail.  [ad]
