Found in a costal Maine attic, this approximately 37 X 25 inch piece of homespun linen is hand bound at the edges and retains a pinned on, meticulously penned, period notation preserving the relic as a: Piece of English officer’s table cloth Used at the siege of Sebastopol (Sevastopol) Crimean war, 1855. Brought home by Capt. John Lincoln Of Brunswick, Maine Our research of period census records produced a single John Lincoln in Brunswick, Maine. The household consisted of John’s mother, his wife Mary, a brother George, an Englishman named William A. Stevens, his wife Clara and a dressmaker, Peabbecca Farrin. All three males were recorded as mariners. A faded red oval stamp in one corner to the table cloth is not discernable to us but may be of note to a collector of period British material. (see photo) A neat old piece that will likely have a story to tell with some research, one must be fascinated with a connection between the Maine mariner and British sea service at the great Siege of Sebastopol? Was Capt. John Lincoln simply a shrewd Maine seafarer who was enticed by the high profits nautical life of dangerous parts of the world or was he somehow more closely associated with the military aspects of the infamous siege. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
