Measuring approximately 50 inches in total length, this pair of make do with what is available, handcrafted crutches will stir the imagination as one ponders the circumstances of their creation. Crafted from natural cherry wood staffs, each split with a hand saw to within approximately a foot from the end and left rough with the bark on, the sections of green and still supple wood each was reinforced at the end of the cut with strips of available sheet tin wrapped around the circumference. The strips were spread with a board cut in the shape of a wedge and secured in place above the tin reinforcements. About half way up a short section of the sapling is secured in place as a hand grip utilizing square iron nuts, classic of the period. Finally a full round section of the cherry sapling is secured across the top end of the spread wood sections. With a bit of common skill, ingenuity, and some work, a matched pair of crutches was created from what was available. Remaining in excellent condition yet with evidence of period wear. An eye catching companion item in any number of Civil War venues. 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!
