Civil War era Geo. CLOOS signed FIFE with signed CHEATER



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.

A most desirable instrument in style, condition and maker, this beautiful fife remains in wonderful condition measuring 17 inches in length with the classic 2 inch long silver ferrules indicative of the time. Despite some wear from period use and carrying the marks of the Civil War era New York musical instrument maker GEO. Cloos with the intertwined G. C. familiar to period musical instrument collectors is clearly desirable. (see: Garofalo & Elrod’s Civil War era MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS ) Of special interest to the deep dish collector will be that the fife retains its boldly signed THE CLOOS cheater. With use of these pewter cheaters well verified by Civil War relic hunters, signed examples are extremely scarce. All original and in outstanding condition with just enough evidence of careful period use to add to its charm and desirability. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. (located at the top of the thumbnail page) A simple key word in lower case works best.
