A remnant of the sand casting methods of earlier post Civil War iron and bronze casting foundries, this carved wood foundry pattern was for use in casting GAR markers so widely used to mark the graves on Civil War veterans. Such patterns were hand carved by craftsmen who duplicated each component of a casting in wood. The artisans finished component was then used to form an impression in fine damp sand then used as a mold in casting with molten iron or bronze. Hard to imagine with today’s rapidly accomplished injection casting methods, in the time of traditional sand casting, even the multiple individual components of a cast iron stove would be first carved of wood, painted or shellacked and used over and over indefinitely in the process. All original and period and in nice condition while offering good evidence of age, this pattern would have been used to cast the standard G.A.R. device measuring approximately 7 inches across. Will display nicely on the wall or set in with other veteran items. 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!
