Best appreciated with a look at the colorful period graphics in our illustrations, this circa 1850s early 1860s Kendall Manufacturing Co., CASTILE SOAP box (see period Rhode Island directories) measures 7 11/16 x 10 3/8 x 4 7/8 inches high and is fashioned from white pine with classic period butt corners and black ironcut nails with wire staple hinged lid. Completely untouched and offering good evidence of age and originality while remaining in excellent condition, the colorful graphics will speak best for themselves adding only that the patriotic cover graphic is signed by period collectable lithographer Snyder, Black and Sturn, 92 William St. New York. A desirable display item in any number of period categories the wide use of castile soap (a hard soap made with olive-oil and soda) included a broad medical / surgical application. A myriad of references in the The Medical and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion has left us good documentation as to the use of castile soap in the Civil War Army Hospital. An unexpected influx of wounded that coincided with the absence of several surgeons lead Civil War Army Nurse Phoebe Pember’s to recall in her journal,Armed with lint, several bandages, castile soap and a basin of warm water, I made my first essays in the surgical line. I had been spectator often enough to be skillful. (see: Worth a Dozen Men: Women and Nursing in the Civil War South by Libra R. Hilde) An attractive Civil War vintage display item and a useful ditty box for collection storage. 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!
