Wonderful Original Pair of Butternut Trousers with Front Fall Fly
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a wonderful display piece! It is a beautiful pair of Civil War era trousers. They are constructed of beautiful butternut/tan wool material. They are a classic Civil War era style with the "Fall Front" fly design. It has the multiple buttons that allow the top portion to fold down. 2 of the buttons at the top are the ones made under the 1851 Goodyear hard rubber company patent and they have the markings on the back. One neat thing about the pants is that the knees were worn and they repaired the right one. These are finely crafted with hand and machine stitching. The bottom of the legs are lined with cream cotton material to reinforce them. The trousers are accompanied by a hand written letter (not an official letter of authenticity) from Civil War dealer Tommy Haas to Civil War uniform expert Les Jensen in which Mr. Haas asks Mr. Jensen as to the age of the trousers. Mr. Jensen responds with "Trousers are mid-19ths C. but could either way of the 1860's. Though I'd guess earlier rather than later. Civilian of course.". As we all know, many of the southern used pieces were home made and so they would technically be civilian. They display beautifully as you can see and will look great displayed with a Confederate uniform. This piece came from the museum like personal collection of Matthew Woodburn.
