Civil War era STOVE POLISH / BOOT BLACKING

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Manufacturer: Phenix Mfg. Co., Taunton, Mass.

A bit of stove polish shaved into a mite of animal fat, poured off a hot skillet and mixed into a portion of bees wax resulted in, if not the best, the most available, leather dressing / boot polish in the 19th century New England lumber camp. As such, a good stick of graphite base stove polish that had found its’ way into the Yankee lumberjack turned Union Volunteer’s haversack would have become a winter camp prize. Not only would it keep the camp stove presentable, but it would serve to make enough boot dressing to keep the company’s feet dry through the winter with some left for the spring mud season. We have discovered an original store box of Phenix Mfg. Co., Taunton, Mass. PREMIUM STOVE POLISH first introduced 1845, and are offering the label wrapped sticks individually and unopened as they came out of the box. Priced here by the individual piece as they would have been sold and used in the period, each purchaser will receive a nicely printed copy of the illustration (as shown here) as record of the original box with its’ libel bearing the Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1862etc. dating with the introductory date of 1845. A neat item for the Civil War personal item collector, country store or kitchen item enthusiast! All original literally out of the box . please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!.
