silver mounted CROSBY marked FIFE by Civil War maker Geo. Cloos

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: George Cloos - Crosby

A most desirable instrument in style, condition and maker, this beautiful fife remains in wonderful condition with classic long silver ferrules and a smooth age patina over good evidence of period use and carrying. The fife is approximately 17 inches in length and is nicely marked CROSBY over the intertwined G. C. familiar to period musical instrument collectors as the mark of Civil War era New York, maker GEO. CLOOS. A well known maker in his own rite the CROSBY became synonymous with the instrument type in the period thus it's use by Cloos. All original and in outstanding condition with just enough evidence of careful period use to add to its charm and desirability. (see: Bazelon & McGuinn Directory of American Military Goods Dealers & Makers ) Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants.
