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 brownish tone paint. At the top of the piece, it has the open hole where the stopper would have gone at one time. It still has the original small wooden nails holding the wooden pieces together with the tin strap looks on the side to keep the strap intact. It has the thick leather shoulder sling with the tinned iron square buckle. It measures 7-1/2 inches across the body and is 2 inches thick. We acquired this piece from a collection in North Mississippi. This is a wonderful piece of early American history.
