Well documented by Civil War site digger historians and period print advertisement, it seems that these little die stamped tin containers saw common use once the original content was used up. Seldom seen in any kind of condition save partial excavated examples, these little boxes made handy containers for stamps, thread, salt or anything that would fit. Listed in Civil War vintage Boston directories, Redding & Co. marketed their RUSSIAN SALVE (composed of bee wax, perfumed oil and glycerin) as a pain extractor that reduces the most angry-looking swellings and inflammations, heals sores, wounds, burns, scalds, etc. as if by magic. [ 1864 Harpers Weekly ] This original example with its military motif REDDING & Co. lid remains in excellent condition and will make a nice addition to any Civil War personal or medical cure groping. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
