Another piece carved out of our own accumulation of Civil War vintage stuff, this neat old hand crafted mess plate measures a full 10 inches in diameter and remains in pleasing condition yet with good evidence of age and originality. Hand formed of sheet-iron then geometrically hand decorated using hand punches or dies* the plate is finished with rolled over and flattened rim. A classic process of the period tin-smith as he plied his trade without benefit of more efficient sheet metalwork equipment found in commercial shops. (* The punches used were handmade resembling stencil cutting or wood working chisels but rather than a cutting tool, were dulled at the edge so as to create a shaped indentation in sheet iron.) A lot to say about a mess plate I suppose but we sell what we like and as an old Maine Mill, Master Journeyman I do get caught up in the intricacies of the old trades.
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!
