PHILADELPHIA DEPOT BULLSEYE CANTEEN FROM THE KEN BREAM COLLECTION OF GETTYSBURG ARTIFACTS

$895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-124

The canteen is complete but for the sling and cork stopper. Both sides of the body have moderate dents but despite these the canteen is holding its shape. The pewter spout has a rolled lip and is unmarked.

The canteen is covered in a brown wool cloth whose seams are mostly open. Two of the three sling keepers are present.

Around the base of the spout is a ring and chain which is all that remains of the stopper.

Canteen is from the collection of local Gettysburg resident and relic hunter Ken Bream. Mr. Bream was born and raised in Gettysburg and grew up in a house right next to the famous Peach Orchard. He graduated from Gettysburg High School and for a while worked for Johnny Johnson who owned the General Longstreet’s Headquarters Museum which once stood on Seminary Ridge, right along Confederate Avenue near the Longstreet Headquarters marker. Mr. Bream obtained some relics from this now defunct museum and dug many more on private property surrounding the battlefield and on the Confederate approach and retreat routes. This canteen was obtained from the auction of Mr. Bream’s collection in October of 2021. [ad] [ph:L]
