Click on an image to enlarge

This is a fantastic piece from the War of 1812 era. This is a wood drum soldier's canteen. This pattern is often referred to as the "Cheese box" canteen since they look like the shape of the old wooden boxes that they would age cheese inside of. This one has a very nice untouched look. It still retains a fine amount of the original greenish tone paint on the outside. When you look closely on the sides it has the dots and lines carved into one of the side panels in the shape of a star. It still has the original small nails holding the wooden pieces together. Two of the three applied leather shoulder sling loops are still intact on the sides. At the top it has the open hole. It measures 6 inches across the body and is 2-1/4th inches thick. This is a wonderful piece of early American history.
