This old stationery box is a bit of an enigma to us and we call it rare as it is the first we have encountered in our 50+ years of seeking out Civil War and mid 1800s personal items and collectables. Familiar with the Scoville Mfg. Co. figured, gutta percha topped, collar boxes commonly referred to as ditty boxes by Civil War collectors, this stationery box version is of the same construction and material. A bit loose at the hinges as is a common malady of the ditty boxes (could easily be tightened but we prefer as found and as used originality) and with good evidence of period use and originality this neat old stationery box remains in pleasing ready for the collection condition. Of most interest to the collector will be the Richmond, Virginia, George Washington Equine statue design on the gutta percha lid. The most desirable pattern found on the Scoville collar box lids, this Equine monument is as was used in Confederate States of America, Great Seal. Likely an embellishment by the original owner is the Civil War patriotic cover in the box lid. The box retains an apparently un-used period ink dipping pen and a ream of un-used Civil War vintage stationery. An outstanding grouping for the gutta percha, writing equipment or personal item enthusiast. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
