CIVIL WAR SOLDIER’S SHAVING MIRROR

$150.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 480-216

These small, round, pewter cased shaving mirrors have been excavated in Civil War camps. The were made by a number of different makers and some were imported. They feature a number of different embossed designs. One of this exact design, with the same crossed cannons, drum, guns and bayonets is shown in plate 126 of Phllips Excavated Artifacts, Supplement 2, page 164. These were cleverly designed so they could be hung up by a small wire loop or set on flat surface with a wire hinge allowing the mirrored section to rest at angle in the hollow base. This is in excellent condition with the cloth lining of the lid in place and just some small losses to the reflecting surface behind the glass.

This would be a key piece in a display of soldier’s personal effects. [sr] [ph:m]
