This carbine cartridge box is an original example of the classic leather accoutrement carried by 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 with light crazing and wear to edges. Stitched to the outer flap is a closure tab that is present but broken on one side at the hole.

Inner flap retains both “ears”. Inner flap closes over a small implement pouch sewn to the front of the box. The inner flap is stamped, “E. GAYLORD / CHICOPEE / MASS.” Bottom of box has a brass finial. The two black japanned roller buckles were removed long ago. On the box’s back side there remains two of the vertical, leather belt loops with a single horizontal leather strap. The stitching is strong and tight.

A nice example of a Civil War carbine cartridge box that saw some light use.   [jet][ph:L]
