Measuring just under 6 inches, heel to toe, this pair should not be confused with child’s shoes as they demonstrate the qualities of stout work shoes or brogans by style, weight of construction and their Pat.1853 scuff plates, as are unearthed by Civil War site digger/ historians. In a period when private purchase foot wear was most commonly made by order by local cobblers who were not eager to expend labor and materials on inventory, such sales samples as are offered here were a common choice for the selection by in the shop buyers and were distributed to country stores, traveling sales persons and yes even sutlers who would measure the troop who would undoubtedly cherish a pair of private purchase shoes over the notoriously ill-fitting issue brogans and pass his order back to the cobbler for construction. This sales sample pair likely started out as black however have turned a very dark brown with age. They are without piercing for laces as would have been required of shoes for wear and even retain the cobblers heel string, one to the other, to keep the pair together. These features offer further assurance that the pair came directly from the cobbler shop as sales samples. Entirely original and remaining in excellent condition yet, with good evidence of age, this eye appealing pair will go well in any quality Civil War era collection. 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!
